we found quite to jolly tiring the curtains not hung up any where & the floor partly up in the sitting room - Our things did not arrive from the railroad till late on Friday.
On Thursday morning we were quite in confusion, first in one room & then in another & Mama very busy arranging everything. Lu H & me went out to see Stoemama & Grannie. We found the former pretty well, the latter not quite so well as ideal - not Aunt Anna who is however better than she has been.
