"June 4 Harvey has had another bad spell. We were afraid he got over tired from going to John Weirs anniversary. He could not walk or move his feet himsef after that.

July 12. Harvey was feeling bad today did not get up all day and at night we had Dr Byrnes from Hudson Falls come out to see him. His blood pressure is 220 and the Dr said it was only a matter of time. He might live quite a while or might go at any time there was not much to be done for him, only keep his bowels open & gave some pills to take his blood pressure down. and make him as comfortable as possible and we tried to do so

July 18. Dr Byrnes came out to see Harvey again. His bowels do not move very good at any time and there seems to be a bunch in his bowels.

July 24 Dr Mulcahy came out to see Harvey but did not work on him, only a little on his bowels, and the next day his bowels moved better than they had in some time. He does not talk only to answer us.

Aug 8 We called Dr Stillman about 10 oclock as Harvey was suffering very much pain but seemed easier later in the night. Hazel stayed down stairs all night I was quite encouraged this afternoon as he had a good movement from his bowels & the hard bunch seemed a lot smaller but is not so well tonight.

Aug 9 Dr Stillman came down again today but did not do anything for him. said there was nothing to do except make him comfortable. He does not take only a few spoonsful of Nurishment once in a while.

Aug 12 Harvey has been failing since Monday but sat up about an hour yesterday & today too but had to be bolstered up in the chair with his chair tipped back and his feet in another chair. He wanted to sit up each day. I thought he was some better I gave him an enema and his bowels moved very good but was very tired afterward. and about Six oclock I tried to give him some milk and he swallowed several spoonfuls but got choked a little on some of the last spoonful and that started him coughing and there seemed to be a lot of phlegm in his throat and he could not raise it and tired to vomit but could not and nearly fainted away or something of that kind for we could not feel his pulse scarcely. We sent for Dr Stillman and he came down but he seemed to be some better when he got here but we thought he was dying and Garry was at Ralphs and he came in and he thought he was dying but he stayed with us a little longer. but kept failing , getting weaker every hour until he breathed his last at a quarter of Six Saturday night Aug 13. We tried to do our best to keep him but God knew what was best.

Aug 16. We had our dear husband & Fathers funeral today at 2 oclock and laid him away in our lot in Prospect Hill Cemetery Argyle beside Harold our dear boy who was killed by a beam falling on him in getting timber for our new Stable on the Farm. This Stable cost us the lives of our oldest living boy and was the cause by worringing and mourning the loss of Harold of Harveys Shock and eventually of his death I am Sure."
