Diary of Alfred Burton Welch

Saturday 1-28-99

More mail. Letter from Jennie Adams. Lay around all day. Read “Irene’s Vow,” a tale of bloodshed and revenge. “Too late for the balm when the heart is broke.” Took Sergt Burtt to supper at Casino de Paco, where we had the usual number of courses, also a strange rare fruit “dulce,” like a watermelon, only it grows up on a very high tree.
