Tuesday May 12, 1914
Sent another letter to Sidney this morning when the children went to school. Sent one to Sadie Hill in Syracuse also. Rec'd letter from Sidney, Maud brought it when she came from school p.m. Memphis did not go p.m. It commenced to rain about 10 a.m. and kept raining harder until tonight, it fairly pours, lightened quite a little and then thunder shook the whole house about 8 p.m. it has been a very sad lonely day to me. Sat up until after ten o'clock.
