I was one of the hostesses and took part in the program. Read from the life of Dolly Madison. Annual meeting of Colonial Dames at Mrs. Handy’s. 14 present and we had such a good time. Spent the day and evening and had luncheon and a light tea. Left Colorado Springs at 3:30 and had a pleasant ride to Denver, where I got lunch and took the train for the two days ride to San Francisco. Hot in Denver, but after dark grew cool and finally cold. Slept quite well. Went to a DAR annual meeting. My two year Regency expires and I feel sad to lay down the the honor and care and I shall probably never again take it up. Quincy Garfield spent the afternoon here and we had a good time talking over old friends and old times. Went to town to see parade of native sons and daughters, it being 60 years since California admission as a state. Ale dinner at the café. Seventy years old today. Winnifred had a cake for me. All of us invited to John’s to supper, and Winnie and I went to theatre with John and Grace. Meeting of Women’s Kansas Day Club. Fine all day meeting with luncheon at noon. Went to Supreme Court, Senate and House with Mrs. Borland and then to lunch with Mr. and Mrs. Evans in Congressional Library. Went to Congress in pm and in evening to delegated meeting at Willand. To Capitol to meet House Committee on Agriculture and discuss National Highways. I spoke for Kansas. Went to luncheon at Senator Curtis'. Winnifred and boys went home this evening. Very lonely."
