Fixing up gardens around studio & flower box—put Blue-eyed Mary & pink & purple petunias in box. Pinks in front of the studio, and chrysanthemums along the west side. The pinks from Bengert’s. “Ess” must need show me her home. Mr. Bengert’s mother, an invalid.

A sunny but cool day.

Evening—letters to Mrs. Walter A. Maier, Dr. O.P. Kretzmann and the Krentz’s.
