[67] Maud thought it frumpy, but others liked it very much. Have been to church to-day, heard J. F. C. 'Most off crutches now and hobble about the house with a cane. Use crutches to go up and down stairs and to walk in the street. ... Have heard much music and have seen Salvini once, in the “Gladiator,” and hope to see him on Thursday, in “MacBETHeth.” How are the dear children? I do want to see them, 'specially July Ward....

My sister is very little changed; always a most tender, sensitive woman. Sister Louisa dic Zzz me at 11 A. M. to bring my g Mr. Terry, Daisy, and Uncle mie appeared, Sister Louisa almost fainted with delight and astonishment.”

June 20, Oak Glen. Dear Flossy suffering at 6 A. M. -about all day. Her child, a fine boy, born at 3 P. M. We are all very happy and thankful. It was touching to see the surprise and joy of the little children when they were admitted to a sight of their new relative. There was something reverent in the aspect of the little creatures, as if they partly felt the mystery of this new life which they could not understand. Some one told them that it came from Heaven. Harry, four years old, said: ‘No, it did n't come from Heaven, for it has n't any wings.’ ”
