Aug. 18 – Tues.

Unusually cold nights + mornings (“Rusalka” came[1])

PM – B+I shopping in Buffalo – Calling on Mrs. Austin (Spencer Corsets) to show her Christmas card – (She wants so).

Evening to Celia Schutz – (Mrs. Fisher, Porterfield, Bob + Evelyn Westphal, Dr. + Mrs.     ) A pleasant chatty time. Celia showed us her recent flower pictures. Lunch at 11:00 good but too much.
