Saturday, July 9, 1887 Do not feel so well today. The same weak limp feeling. Have written to Janette, Weir, Whittredge and sent a paper to Mrs. Steele. A letter came from Lucy last night written last Sunday, greatly alarmed about my father as she had received Saras letter saying he was not so well, but hoping as we had not telegraphed he was better. He had then been laid in his grave. She will probably not have received my letter telling her of his death until Tuesday last. She will be shocked but in some measure prepared.
