March 19 TuesdaySusy Clemens’ sixth birthday was noted in Sam’s notebook [MTNJ 2: 54].

Sam’s notebook: “Lester writes (from Washington) one of the regular Jones-Lester non-committal half-promising for the 26th” [MTNJ 2: 55]. (See Mar. 13 & 26 entries.)

Sam’s Mar. 20 notebook entry for Mar. 19:

Twichell, at the farewell [George L.] Pentecost meeting yesterday [Mar. 19] urged people to keep on going to church—we can’t give you such preaching, “but you come nevertheless & take what God can give you through us (the local preachers), remembering that ½ a loaf is better than no bread. You know that the ravens brought food to Elijah, & when he got it it was as nutritious as if it had been brought by a finer bird” [MTNJ 2: 55]
