For a ride on my bicycle to Ebenezer & Springbrook & home by Center Road. A fine June day – the smell of the clover from off the warm fields; elder blossoms ready to bloom; new apples already formed presenting warm sunburned cheeks on their upper sides. I thought of Mary Alice & Martha, what a hold they have on me – how I hate to leave them. Mary Alice’s imperious "Daddy, Come!" being a command that must be obeyed.
Schwanekamp out on bus with me & and stops a few minutes. Shows me trial prints of his new etching “Keep Alley” and gives me one. It is his best so far.
