No sleep during the night. Fear and anxiety are predominant yet this morning. Wife not improved. Child remains much the same. My sensations are not too delineated. Experience alone can reconcile them. We have Magdelane Hauser, grandmother of my wife on the father's side, with us today. This is the first great-grandchild of Christian Lash, father of my wife's mother, and is a merchant in this place.
