August 29.—Mrs. James is making a positive fool of Carrie.
Carrie appeared in a new dress like a smock-frock. She said “smocking”

Mrs. James went home, and both Lupin and I were somewhat pleased—the
first time we have agreed on a single subject since his return.
Merkins and Son write they have no vacancy for Lupin.
