May 1st Wednesday

A very fine morning. Preparing to leave for Battle Creek, our next stopping place where Ed West lives. Took the train from Rockford, Ill. for Battle Creek at 8am. Arrived in Chicago about 10 o’clock & went directly onto the Mich. Central road and arrived at Battle Creek at 3 o’clock. Found Mr. West at his store & was ushered up to his house by his son, Julius. Has a very pleasant home in a beautiful part of the city. Chauncey is feeling quite poorly. It is also very dry here, need rain badly. It is a lovely place.
