and perhaps in a building where they are directly or indirectly interested.
Spent the afternoon until late with Breneche at the Exposition Electricity building, transportation etc. etc.  It seems endless and would take many weeks of successive visits to see it all and one gets very tired after about one week of it.
The [[red underlined]] exposition [[/red underlined]] is extremely [[red underlined]] interesting [[/red underlined]] and has been planned on an enormous scale.  Nevertheless it [[red underlined]] lacks [[/red underlined]] absolutely that [[red underlined]] magnificent artistic expression of the Exhibition of 1893 [[/red underlined]] with its eminently artistic buildings which at that time were a more overwhelming creation one can never forget; incomparably superior to any attempt of the like in Paris, London or any other preceding exhibition.  Any artistic attempts here are marred by [[red underlined]] loud, shrieking colors [[/red underlined]], and outlines, cubist construction combined with shrill noises everywhere.  To bed very tired at 9 P.M., ready for tomorrows packing and travel.
[[underlined]] Sept. 6 [[/underlined]] Foggy and sultry.  Left station 11:30 A.M. Breneche came to see me off. Quiet trip first rather sultry then cooler
