Walter came by, this evening. We watched the new filly trying to stand in the twilight, with her legs so long and weak and funny. I told Walter my honest feelings about Europe and he did a magic trick. I hope my arm gets better. Lucy said, "Don't you find Walter very thin?" I said I liked him and it was nothing food could not cure. Tomorrow we hope for sunny weather. A French Horn expert is coming for a Presentation, and to have it outdoors in Great Field would be among other things an experience.
