January 12, 1879

Sunday, Jan 12th, 1879    A sad lonely day   Our little boy lay dead in the house & our thoughts were on him all the time    Amanda took a little waist[1] home & washed & done it up & Roy went after it   Vic brought the coffin toward night   Mr & Mrs Kindle came & stayed all day   Also Stephen Leighton & at night Wm Carris & Hicks   Holden & Laura & Stephen Leighton came to stay all night with us   A pleasant warm day

[1] Possibly a shorter term for waistcoat
