== JANUARY SATURDAY 1 1887 == Have not felt just right of late. a dark cloud of disappointment and trial has been passing over me. It seems so hard at times to reconcile my outward circumstances with the word of promise. Ma and I went down to William Wattses for our New Years dinner Enjoyed a couple of hours with them very much. Had unckle Johns with us for tea. A.G. Rose & family being with them. His having come for a couple of day visit home.
