Venice, May 2, 1909

My dear boy:

I am certainly glad that this is a day of rest and that I had an opportunity to go to church. I call at the hotel to see Grace and Miss. M. but did not find them. I then went to a Scotch Presbyterian Church and enjoyed a good English service. After dinner I called for Grace and Miss M. and brought them over to our rooms, and we had a social chat together.

We all intended to go out for a walk, but it was so cold, and would sprinkle a little now and then, that I took them home. We have to cross the Grand Canal on a ferry Gondola, which costs us one cent every time. After that Emily and I took a walk along the Canal and over to the Academy Bridge and the gallery, around the Jesuit Church etc., and went to bed in good time.
