Louisa P., age 72, Washington, D.C.


Fine. Went to St. John’s – fine music and sermon – Walked there and back – Took wrong car to Hotel Potomac. Walked across Capitol Plaza. Long talk with Miss Morley. Florence came about 5. Very bright and pleasant.  *(Louisa Pitkin Diary #M2003.5.1, D. H. Ramsey Library Special Collections, UNC Asheville)
