Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 8, page 236, September 30, 1855

Description: Regarding the death of his brother-in-law, Joseph Greatbatch.

Transcription:

[fortu]nes would justify her [Mary Anne Greatbatch] taking a sombre view of it.

It’s well with poor [Joseph] Greatbatch now. All his struggles and sufferings are over, and no man ever did his duty, bravely and patiently, without finding his account by it, in some world.

Wrote at once to Mary Anne, and home, enclosing her letter. Down town with letters.

Drawing till midnight. An unusually cold day.
