Nice and cool all day. Nellie brought a special delivery letter this morning, came on the 7 from Mr. Higley. As it was to late to get the eight train Sidney went on the 11 a.m. to Syracuse to meet Mr. Higley there at the Y.M.C.A, took dinner with him and came home on the 7 p.m. walked from the Square. Maud went to get some buttermilk and Mrs. Weatherup told her to come back down with Mora and pick black caps. They took a two qt. pail and she said that was too small so she gave them all they picked, 12 qts. I have filled 5 qt. cans, saved 2 qt. for a shortcake and had some for our supper. The tiger kitten Avis gave the children died this p.m.
