May Swan had another daughter last Wednesday. Sarah North is at work there. Friday Eugene, Clara and I went to Woodstock, had our photo taken. Mother Swan came back with us. (We came home by way of Ringwood.) Father and Mother talk of going East. The Pacific Railroad was finished the 10th of last May.

May, Will and I went up to Woodstock yesterday. Left Clara and Nora over to Mother’s. Came back and took supper there. Mrs. Moses was there also. I have got the blues today and have cause. Anna has been quite sick since I wrote last.
