We went to bid goodbye to Mrs. Harker Spensley who is ill and not calculated to live long. Miss Roberts, Luella, was fishing in the morning. Mr. W., Miss Roberts and I started from Mineral Point to Dubuque about 2pm, leaving Mrs. Waller with her daughter, Mrs. Spensley. I enjoyed my visit with Mr. and Mrs. Spensley very much and invited them to pay us a visit should they ever come to England.
