I’m in Allegan tonight isn’t that surprising! Papa came home unexpectedly this morning and I wanted to come back with him so we came over on the noon train. I telephoned to Hellen Merchant to come and practice and we played and at four went over to Mrs Redmans and practiced we had a lovely time together. Then Mrs Redman asked me to stay to supper so I did and had such a nice time. Then I came home and sat here practicing and a few minutes ago I felt sort of sleepy and thought I would go to bed even if it was early and low and behold its 9:30 o’clock.

I played until church time then went to church and S.S. Miss Elleott sang “Hold Thou my Hand” this morning just beautifully! I asked Hellen to come up to dinner. Mr Ball and his bride were also there and we had a pleasent[sic] time. They went after dinner and Hellen and Miss Ellett and I practiced all the afternoon. Oh we had a lovely time I do enjoy the mandolin so much I wonder if I will ever get so I can play it just beautifully!! We played so many pieces. I liked “Plains of Peace” very much. Then Hellen and papa came up to the train with us and Mamma & I came home. There is an awful blizard[sic] waging now!
