Rained all day and was altogether
gloomy. Mother wasn't able to
get up all day and Mary has a
cough bad enough to drive anyone
wild. Mothing seems to do it any
good. We had the big closet and
pantry painted today. I was busy
moving things from one place to
another. General confusion prevails.
Marnie was here all afternoon.
Rob came to wash the back parlor
wood work at five P. M. Am hoping
tomorrow will be full of sunshine.

Another awful gloomy day.
rainy -- turned cold -- seemed a little
this adn we are afraid of a
freeze. Mary has felt very miserable.
The nurse was leaving George's
so I told her to come over and
take care of Mary a few days.
She came about 5. Mary cried
herself hoarse over having a stranger
about. So I didn't keep her. Mother
got some goose grease from
Grandma Cavanaugh. Have Mary
greased & wrapped in flannel
tonight. Am hoping it will
help her because I am very much
worried about her.
