drives me to the railroad station. Good bye to
him and aboard the cars. Day dullish. Nia-

plain husband of the pretty Weighty, who has a
baby and is one of the most devoted of mothers.
This Griffin seemed a loaferish young fellow.
A two mile walk to Niagara village and house,
formerly hotel of that name. Found Miss Lucia
conversing with an acquaintance, who soon left.
Talk with her, with Mrs. Griffin and Miss Julia
