Spent Sunday in Ithaca getting packed up. Brother Will came over in the morning + is going to stay and help me get things ready. Telephoned home but had no mail and so I telephoned to Com. Peary. Roosevelt leaves N.Y. tomorrow + stops at Oyster Bay Tues. so I will remain here tomorrow + then run down to Oyster Bay, back home again + go in the ship at Sydney. Did things with a rush Sunday evening. Called on Susie until after nine, Carol until after eleven, and then Ruth until nearly two. I am surprised at myself.
