Margaret’s Birthday, could anything be a greater contrast than this to the day on which she was born, I was in Washington at the Capital Building and the telegram came announcing her arrival– how delighted I was and every one at home. She has been a blessing all her short life but there have been many dark days in the household, and now we are passing through a time of great sorrow, that to us who can realize such burdens are almost beyond endurance {p. 87}

I ordered a carriage and drove to the Kenyon and called for Eva Fay [Anna Eva Heathman Fay Pingree] to go down to Annie’s with me, Isabel was already there when we arrived, we had a pleasant time and a fine luncheon, during the time we were at the table Winnie Sylvester [Q.] Cannon’s wife came in with her new baby boy Julian Seville [Saville Cannon], and soon after May Hugh [J.] Cannon’s wife and Frank’s wife Mattie. When we left we took Belle home and went round so Miss Fay could see my home. {p. 89}
