I sent you a letter a few days stating
partially Tempeys

Illness twelve weeks this
day since she was first confined to her bed
She was smart and set up a little in that time
for the the last four weeks has been almost
as helpless as an infant had to be lifted from
bed to bed without the benefit of sitting up any
had lost all strength and flesh ten days since
a rush of blood to the head she lost her reason
which did not return fully suffered greatly
but was not concious of it began to fail
sensibly last sabbath and died yesterday after
