Thursday, Aug 28, 1884 I felt very worried and discouraged this forenoon as did Sara and we talked of the future and tried to think what we were to do. Shortly after John McEntee sent up to know if I would like to go fishing. I was ready to do any thing and at 11 oclock we started for our old fishing place below the Glasco bridge. John caught two fine bass weighing about 2 lbs each and six besides, while I who fished just beside him caught only one small one and broke my rod besides. A man was fishing in a boat just beside us and caught nothing. We left at 6 and got home by dark. One the way home John had a brush with a fast team. We had a pleasant day and we each of us forgot our daily worries which is a gain.
