Apr. 23rd Tuesday

Took street car from Mrs. Watson’s for depot. Mr. B____* found Mr. Stevens there & came in to Ladies room with him introducing him to me as Mr. Brown & they seemed to enjoy the joke hugely to my mortification. But I soon saw who it was after putting on my glasses & I too enjoyed the surprise. He came with us as far as Omaha. He starts from there in a day or two for (?) with a car load of horses. We left Lincoln about 8 o’clock and reached Afton Junction about 3 o’clock where I now am writing this, & such a place it never was my fortune to wait at before & here we have to stay ’till 5 o’clock. & such poor accommodations; after climbing about 50 stairs reach a waiting room about 12×14 where about 9 poor tired travelers are obliged to wait ’till train on Great Western road arrives. 2 long freight trains have passed on the B&M road of from 50 to 70 cars each. Where we’ve been waiting, it’s a very sightly place being up so high. Can look over the surrounding country which is very broken & rough.

*referring to her husband, Chauncey Burch. In other entries she refers to him as C___.
