Monday, May 12, 1884 Gussie seems better and Sara thinks her decidedly so. I am not sure but she is certainly easier. The men came to do the papering. I helped get the paper off Mothers room. Have had a busy and anxious day. Gussie has had a comparatively comfortable day. I sat with her this evening while Gertrude and Sara were at tea. She had a cold sweat and great difficulty breathing and in an almost dying state although perfectly conscious and able to talk but with difficulty. Telegram from Laura that she was coming. Telegraph to Charlie.
