    ...as I said, he doesn't do much in the way of elaboration.  I just looked it up.  His September 4, 1893 entry says they visited the world's fair and stayed the night in Harvey (which would have been a fair commute in those days.)  The Ferris wheel entry on September 6 reads, in total, "Went up in Ferris Wheel. Staid for Illumination at night."  It's left to the reader to fill in the details, I guess. ;-)
