Sunday - July 10 - 

Elizabeth White came for me and we stopped at Bishop's Lodge for Mrs Rhodes - to go to Mary Wheelwrights to a very pretty tea - 
Mrs Rhodes is concerned about the N.W. tribes of Indians with their poverty & lost arts. I hear her inquiring of all she meets on this subject. Her query to Mary Austin was met with "Send a colony of artists up there to live awhile." which is delightful I think. Saying a bookful in one sentence - 
Coming home I suggested she talks with Louise Morris on the [[strikethrough]] N.W. [[/strikethrough]] Indians of Wisconsin & she asked to bring a Mrs [[blank]] who is doing official research work this summer at the Anthropological laboratory in the hope of doing something to revive the arts & restore the good design to the N.W. tribes. [[strikethrough]] Mrs. Rhodes & Miss [[/strikethrough]] we will see if the Indian boys will come again next Sat. to dance, and ask Mrs. R. & her niece, & Mrs & Miss White etc to come - which pleases Mrs R who is disappointed not to have seen them yesterday. 
Mon - Mrs Rhodes called & saw my house for the first time
