I have been unable to get a list of his things as yet but doubt if he left enough to yiel d an income of $1800 a year, but the principal can be used as needed.

He had had a bad night Thursday and o n Friday looked very grey and worn out, but was down to see his Doctor that afternoon, ha d a better night Friday and Saturday night rested comfortably. I think he could have had no i dea himself that his end was so near or would have said something to me about it, as it wa s I had been invited to play Golf at Davenport and after seeing him looking so much better de cided it would be allright for me to go. Mother says, after he had eaten dinner he began to h ave pains which he attributed to gas and, after taking everything he had in the house to sto p it, called his doctor himself, was unable to get him and called another, then finally got h is osteopath who came and stayed with him from four o'clock until the end, about 6:30. I arri ved home a little after seven and went there immediately. Fred and Jennie had been there unti l near six when Fred had to take Jennie home to meet Kathryn who was coming up from Wapelle , so no one was with Mother at the time except Dr. Pearson."
