Wednesday, July 6, 1887 A gloomy day with very hard showers and heavy thunder & lightning. I am feeling as though I would fall in pieces. I have written Lucy about my fathers will so that she will understand when the Surrogates papers come to her. I had a letter from Wood yesterday with a bill of $10 from Romkin for printing for the Artists M. A. Society and today came the same bill to me from Romkin. I also had a letter from Alice and one from Mr. Welles. Sara is at work in our fathers room putting away his clothes etc. Calvert went back to N. Y. this morning. Life looks very sober and uncertain to me today.
