Saturday, Aug. 31, 1918
Arrived in Chicago about 7:30 A. M.
[?] O'Donnell met Mary & brought us
to the LaSalle hotel. Harry, Mary
& I were out in the city all morning.
Mary surely enjoyed the toy department
at Marshall Fields. We tried to
find her a coat but didn't succeedd. Mary
was so tired that she fell asleep
on the way home. City life does
not suit me. A little goes a long
way. We were out again this afternoon.
Little coats cost as high as $50. We
walked the full length of Michigan Blvd. &
enjoyed the shops. Seeing the people.
Had ice cream in an Allegretti Shop. Harry
brought me two boxes. Had supper on the way back.
Sunday, Sept. 1, 1918
3,000,000 autos idle in Chicago today by
order of the government. The quiet seemed
good. We had been promising Mary for some
time to take her to see the animals, bears,
monkeys, etc. So this A. M. we went to
Lincoln Park. She throughly enjoyed
herself. Was delighted with everything.
Thye birds were beautiful too. It did
one's heart good to see the little
tot running along having a good
time. The humanity of such places
always attracks me. We dined on the
Morrison's Hotel. In the terraced ice-
garden about 3 o'clock. Had a lovely
dinner. Mary enjoys being with a
crowd. Had a pleasant day all
around. Left Chicago for St. Louis
at 11:30 P. M. [?] O'Donnell came to
St. Louis. Miss Kelly & John Mc were at the
train with him.
