A good day. I was at Tim Bennetts this morning. Tim and four Negro men went to The Red House to day. Gordon Bennett brought me to Marvins. Lizzie come with me. She went home on the train. I have had a good time with them. Lizzie and Carrie think they have a hard time and they do but it might be worse. They have enough to eat and to wear. I wish they did not have to work so hard and they were more content with their lot. I would give them enough to do some good but I can't help mself or them either. I want to be thankful that I am able to do what I can. Oh Lord remember us all for Christ sake. Amen.
