September 11, 1899

Monday Sept 11  A pleasant fall like day  I was down town awhile AM & PM & got 35 Cards $2,50 at Reeds for Bells wedding  She is to be married the 21st inst to Ralph Hull  it Seems to me She might have done better but I will also say She might have done worse  heard Dreyfus the French Capt is convicted 2nd time[1]

[1] Known as The Dreyfus Affair; see Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dreyfus_affair and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trial_and_conviction_of_Alfred_Dreyfus

  1. Wow! That is incredible about Dreyfus. It was news in Iowa and Isaac was interested in it, enough to comment. I just keep admiring him more and more…
