Monday, Oct 16, 1882 Went over to the cemetery by arrangement with the keeper, directly after breakfast and rearranged the sodding about the graves on our lot, making them into square flower beds which kept me until noon. This afternoon helped Sara put the carpet down in the parlor and arrange it for winter. I telegraphed Calvert this morning to know how Downing was and he replied "return to Marbletown. good progress today. I am at business" so we conclude Downing is out of danger and I will go back tomorrow if the weather is fair. There are symptoms of rain. Sara expects to go to N. Y. tomorrow. Maurice has helped today in the parlor and seems himself. John Swan died last week while I was at Marbletown.
