To early service – H. along – (the blue-jay family) A rather tiresome day – finally in desperation we drove over to Crowns for a snack – on our return we invited the R’s [Richters] for a visit and refreshments – After I went to bed, had a violent coughing spell, with some very difficult breathing – the worst in weeks – So we got up and had tea, and watched a late movie until 1:00. Then I took a sleeping capsule.
