Note:  It is not like Isaac to write so little about his son, Harvey, who he hasn’t seen in some time.  One reason for this may be that Isaac learned Harvey had separated from his wife, Sarah, and their three children.  Just knowing Isaac through his journal entries, we could surmise that Isaac may not have been pleased.  It was a very short visit — perhaps for this reason.
