Arrived in Chicago at 12:55 on N.Y. time which was 2 hrs different already. Only a few of us were awake, those in charge of cars. Stopped for a few hrs. took a walk, saw some of the "World's Fair" and couldn't stay very long. But what we saw was very pretty all lighted up like Luna Park only much nicer.
Left Chicago at 2:55 then went to bed and couldn't see where we went through. The Pullman train was swell. I had a compartment for myself as I was in charge of the car.
