Saturday, Feb 25, 1888 A fierce N. E. rain storm was raging this morning when I went over to breakfast. I went home by 10 oclock train. It continued to rain until we reached Highland where we encountered snow. It had been all snow at Kingston. In the afternoon it rained hard. Sara had gone to Middletown to take Mrs. Connelly to the Asylum and did not return until evening. She had seen Nannie who looked improved and who the physicians said was improved but she did not care much to talk with Sara, not being sure as she said that it was she. It seemed strange and sad to come home and find no one there. I cut the above notice from the Tribune. Miss Collins was an old friend of Marys and had known great vicissitudes of fortune.
