Sun., 10/26 Lazy Sunday. Went to church to hear one of the teachers speak of her work in France with the Y.M.C.A.* and the 54 Pioneer Co. Also called at the other church. (*See Appendix H).
Mon., 10/27 Early in town today to shop and carelessly strolled along Broad Street watching the many different people wandering about their aversions. Looked through the stores but only bought a box of candy. Finished the afternoon at Newark. Ed and Olive dropped in this evening to see if I had rented my spare room.
