Can only as yet walk a little around the land. A cold ordinary day….Had chills and fever. Went to bed at noon, did not set up anymore till next day…..Could not sit up. Georgie and children about dark. Twelve years ago this day my dear mother died…..A little better but not steady enough to go down stairs. 18 years ago this day I was married to Mr. Bessey….."
