Diary of Chriss A. Bell

May 7, 1899

Sunday. Lay around quarters reading all day. About 5 Miss Dunn called for me in her cart we went out on Luenetta [Luneta] listened to music o f the people and about 6:30 came over to dinner then drove out toward Emilia [Ermita]. Shower came up so we returned home about 7:30. Had a fine drive. Luenetta (sic) is becoming great place for American women. They all come dressed in their best which is of course fine. They have adapted the Spanish custom of going without hats which is far ahead of a unexpected treat. I came home on Capts [Captain’s] pass about 10 p.m.
