He had the whooping cough, which, complicated with teething, was too much for the dear child, and he sleeps his last, long sleep. "Our loss is his gain." But he was such a beautiful boy - 16 months old. I was hard from him to part and lay him in the grave. (T.S.R. 59. 2 P.M. 83. S.S. 79.) July 2. Friday. Mr. T. P. Henshaw, who has been clerk in our store and Post-office for over a year past, has left us today. He will soon go East by railroad. He has been a very valuable assistant in the Dr.'s business, and he will miss him very much. (T.S.R. 55. 2 P.M. 83. S.S. 77.) July 3. Saturday. Leaving the two little babies at home, we started out this forenoon for a ride. Ada was housekeeper while we were absent, and Luther was left in the Store to assist Mr. Plummer. Fourth of July is very accommodating this year. Part of us can celebrate it on Saturday and a part on Monday. So we thought, and as there was to be a barbecue at Linden, we concluded to go. But we were detained by business until it was so late, that we did not arrive at Linden until after the Oration was conclude, and most of the dinner. But the ride was a pleasant one and I was glad of the opportunity of seeing the town and the grove. This grove is really a very beautiful one. The trees are small and young, but stand thick together, so that the sunshine cannot come in to be troublesome. The company was quite large, but were mostly strangers to us. (T.S.R. 55. 2 P.M. 86. S.S. 72.) July 4. Sabbath. Little Hannah not well. Could not attend meeting. (T.S.R. 55. 2 P.M. 87. S.S. 73.) July 5. Monday. Ada went to Stockton today with Mr. Plummer and Maggie Wilcoxon, and they remained to see the fireworks this evening. (T.S.R. 55.2 P.M 86. S.S. 76.) July 6. Tuesday. We have received a letter from Aunt Gerould, requesting us to call our babe "John Calvin", which was the name of her son who killed in the war with the rebels. As Dr. wrote, suggesting that she send us a name, we think we shall call him so. (T.S.R. 58. 2 P.M. 90. S.S. 77.) July 7. Wednesday. Mrs. Wallace called this morning, desiring me to come there tomorrow. (T.S.R. 55. 2 P.M. 81. S.S. 69.) July 8. Thursday. Weather cloudy and cool. I started out this morning with the two babies for a walk. I first called on Mrs. Brummel, our nearest neighbor, whom I have not before seen. I then went to see poor, bereaved Mrs.
