We got up at 3:00 o’clock this morning, ate our breakfast and then I said good-bye to Mrs. Neill and Jessie, and Fred and I started for Frankfort.  It was quite cool and frosty.  We got to the boat in plenty time.  I bought 2 [?] Water line, which Fred was going to take back for me.  The lake was quite smooth, so I did not get sick in coming down to Manistee where I took the train I had a bad affair with my satchel, which I had checked and they broke a can of maple syrup, which is all over the things in it.  I am writing in the depot at Wayne Jr., not a good place.
