Saturday, Sept 9, 1882 The Weirs left for Haines Falls by the noon train via Stony Clove. I am afraid their visit was not a success as one of the children was sick. I went to see about a mason to finish the stable and to make the necessary arrangements. We have sold the old barn to be removed in Oct. and now we must finish the new one. The cook is going to leave and there is a new trouble.
