Bremen, August 6, 1909

We spent the morning at home writing and, at 4 o’clock, we went with Mr. Burkhardt and Hanna to the Bürgerpark. There we sat at the Cafe on the Emma See and listened to the music of the Bremer Military Band.

It is interesting to see the Bremen ladies, how they flock around here. They have regular Kränzchen and bring their fancy work along and sit and knit and talk and sit and sip their coffee until the gentlemen make their appearance. That’s what I call German Gemutlichkeit.

Emily and Hanna went rowing on the lake and paid the enormous sum of 12.5 cents an hour for the boat.
