From Wilford Woodruff’s journal entry, June 9 1897[footnote]Journal of Wilford Woodruff[/footnote]

June 9th I was quite restless all night. Felt chilly. Took a little Brandy sling and a cup of coffee, and slept some before daylight and until 9 am. when I ate breakfast, after which I rested and slept at intervals until 3 pm. when I walked out and saw the men driving for a well. Ate my supper with the family at 7 pm. Bro & Sister Naegley & Bro & Sister Siebert & Wm. McEwan called and spent the evening. Had refreshments at 10 pm. I did not go to bed until 11.30 pm.
