Visited Thomas Conrad at his father's. He must die. Old Eve Wendle nurses him well. She is very talkative and seems very kind. She is one of the many unfortunate widows left destitute of everything but a family. I believe this woman has been wronged out of the little property left by her husband. She has two daughters dependent on her labor. She must experience much anxiety about them.
