In the morning did some errands. Played chess with Thede and Melissa. Oysters for supper. Thede goes back tonight. I could see he dreads it — so do we. In the evening went to N. P. (North Professor street — Fannie Andrews' home). Had such a good visit. Called at N. P. 2 a few minutes. (Fannie Henderson's home.) Had a pleasant tete-a-tete with F. The more I see her, the greater is my love and admiration. Called on Fred and Fairchild. Thede returned to camp. Pictures. Sweet Home!
