War diary and letters of Stephen Minot Weld

July 3. — Started from the hotel this morning with Mitchell, and ordered a pair of trousers, to be finished to-morrow, as we go to the general’s funeral then. In the afternoon I dined with Rosengarten, and then proceeded to make some calls. I first went to Mr. Furness’s, but found him the only one at home, as the three boys had gone to the war. In the evening I met Milton at the hotel, and called with him on Hallowell and Parkman Blake.[1] I met Frank Haseltine[2] at Blake’s, and was of course delighted to see him.

[1] S. Parkman Blake, Harvard 1855.
