My right hand, which had been bitten the hardest, swelled up last night and is still swollen this morning. It itches + burns and is very uncomfortable.
Tired and exhausted by my work and emotion yesterday - Midmorning to Fredonia to bring girls home for summer. A pleasant ride down the S.W. Boulevard - fields of buttercups and yellow hawkweed.
Evening letter from Hobart Nichols inviting me to serve on the jury for Metropolitan Museum next November (at which $52,000 is to be spent for pictures) - I wired an acceptance.
Later, all of us to Maxine to see " All Thru the Night" and "Unexpected Uncle" both entertaining.
