A beautiful day. Feel very badly so nervous + lame + sore all over. Edith + Audrea have gone to Boston to do a little shopping. I feel today as if I was foolish to send for anything, but I hope I will be better tomorrow. Edith has got back but left three dollars worth of purchases behind her is dreadfully worries. says she will go in tomorrow morning + see if she can find them. The Baldwins run in tonight at what would be bedtime for any one else. Stayed about two hours. Mr B says Edith will never see her goods again. Feel a little better. I need some one to speak to once in a while.

The blood sample, given by a 28-year-old man named Asibi, led to the isolation and discovery of the virus that transmits the disease.
- Walter Heitler and Fritz London submitted their paper, “Wechselwirkung neutraler Atome und homöopolare Bindung nach der Quantenmechanik”, for publication in Zeitschrift für Physik, and event described as “the birthday of quantum chemistry“.
