Another nite flopping around. My neck is sure bothering me. I finally got up at 5:00 and read in the smoker until 6:00. I then shaved and cleaned up. We arrived in Chicago at 8:10 and marched into the restaurant for breakfast. We had no more than finished when our train pulled out. We are taking the Erie R.R. out of Chicago. We have been passing thru large industrial districts all day. It’s been cloudy and rainy every since we left Calif. I am beginning to to miss my wife and children. The boys are singing in the smoker. As I write this, they are singing Mary’s a Grand Old Name. It’s 10:25 so I’ll try and get some sleep. We should be in NY at 10:00 tomorrow.
