On Tuesday the 17th of October I drove to Baltimore and as if the very presence of the family was injurious to me, my old complaint returned. I was consequently very dull and neither the Theatre,2 horse race nor the company of many friends could revive me.


From D/CFA/5.


CFA saw Cherry and Fair Star and Simpson and Co., a comedy by John Poole at the Holliday Street Theater (D/CFA/1; Francis F. Beirne, The Amiable Baltimoreans, N.Y., 1951, p. 177).
