I left for Zanesville, I was overflowing with happiness at the prospect of going back to the little town, which I have not seen for nearly a year. Linda walked to the station with me, and carried my "truck", which was very kind of her. I do not know how she carried it so far. My ticket to Canton was 59 cents, it seemed a long time before I arrived to Canton, and in Canton I had a wait of about two hours. From Canton to Zanesville cost me $2.75, I arrived in Zanesville about 3 o'clock in the afternoon. There were a few changes that I had noticed but not many. I was a little disappointed when nobody was there at the station, when my train pulled in, for I was thinking that my cousin Victor would be there. I boarded a street car, the fares were now a nickel straight, ask for transfer for the Greenwood car line. The town seemed very quiet to me to my surprise for this was Saturday. I formerly when I lived there I always thought the streets to be very crowded on Saturday. When I was coming from the Greenwood car line, I saw running out of the house to meet me, she told me to stay at her house all night, and that I should bring my clothes to her house, which I did.
I could not wait until I arrived at Emma's house.....
...Victor preached the same sermon he had preached in Akron, but the Zanesville congregation gave him $15.00, he had also preached an early morning sermon in German. Emma had a splendid dinner, and the whole family of Schmids were over, and they also stayed for supper, we played cards in the afternoon, but it was not a very interesting game...After supper we all went down the street for they had a big doings about the Third Liberty Loan, all there was down the street were lots of people and I can see that in Akron.
