Jervis McEntee Diaries: May 9, 1884

Friday, May 9, 1884 Went home by 9.30 A. M. train. Sara had telegraphed to me but I came away before it arrived. Found Gussie very ill. They had carried her into my room. We sent for Dr. Ingalls and he thought I had better telegraph to Joe which I did in these words "Gussie not so well. I think it a wise precaution for you to come on.["] Dr Ingalls said the action of her heart was very violent, and unless there was a change, which might occur, she could not live long. Drove my father, who had had a dizzy feeling in the morning, to Kingston and went to Valentines to arrange for some flower plants for the cemetery.
