Mildred talks about her dismay of "machines" or cars, and states that she prefers horses. Mildred, her sister, and some family members take a trip to Washington, D.C. In Washington, they visit Mount Vernon, the National Treasury, Ford's Theater, the White House, and the Capitol Building. They also spend some time in Richmond where they visited the Capitol Building and the Confederate Museum. The diary gives a strong insight into the life of an upper middle class women in the early 20th century.
