=== Friday 6. === Finished pulling the currants and cherries today went up to see A Lamont after tea. He declined rapidly about four o-clock and afterwards till he breathed his last about 6.15 P.M. He was the first person that I ever saw dying. I was in the room about fifteen minutes before he died. How soon! Oh Lord! how soon Thou tookest that lamb to thy bosom. We all do fade as a leaf.
