Sunday, June 6, 1880 My rheumatism is much better today. A note come from Andes from Stedman last night to say he would stop and spend the night with me tomorrow on his way to N. Y. Have staid in all day and have not felt well. My digestion is impaired and I have had waves of depression passing over me by turns. Wrote to Booth and a note to Van Derliss. Read some of my letters to Gertrude in 1876. I was under great depression then and I must have caused her great anxiety. I remember what a comfort her loving letters were then to me and I take fresh comfort in them now.
