Wed., 10/8 Sent a missive to Mr. Konight asking if I could not help address letters for him. I should love to take a hand in politics so this is the trial and start for some time soon. Newark women will vote and I must be busy. Went up to see Eleanor who has been quite sick. Came home in evening after helping Elizabeth a little.

Thurs., 10/9 Off down town early there was a sale on hats but oh me. I cannot find anything cheap to fit or suit me. Saw a beaver tam o'shanter (cap) which I must have. Stayed home rest of day. Ruth is quite nervous yet. Cousin Elizabeth called for a chat while I was visiting the French girl who met with an accident while out riding.
