[2]wrote a long letter to Helen & Wanda telling of a merry sleigh ride she had enjoyed & how she had been visiting her friends & bible class after the confinement to the house, etc. On the evening of the 8th she was stricken with apoplexy & Dan was telegraphed for. On the 11th she seemed better, but gradually failed. Mary may have been with her at the last, for she lives in Kearney, Nebraska, within a days distance, but we have not heard that she got notice in time.I think poor Anne often over tasked herself in church work, in which she was very zealous.Sarah is still with her lonely sorrowing daughter Anna in Oregon I think I wrote that her husband Hiram Eastman died suddenly about a month ago in Chicago, where03152
