Monday, June 20, 1881 We returned after breakfast via Rock Lock. The valley was very beautiful and it seemed to me I would find nothing so pretty in Nevada. Found a letter from Mary Gifford. She says she is ill and fears she never will be better. Mrs. Sanford Gifford has written them a letter taking a final leave of all of them on account of a disagreement about Sanfords will. I fear Mary is worrying herself sick over this and I have just written her begging her not to let this prey upon her spirits. I also wrote James Gifford a short note. Mary went home this morning by the Powell. Julia and Emma Brace came by the Powell this evening.
