SUNDAY 24th JUNE 1888

Home. An anxious day. Father ......

The rest is missing but then in a different handwriting, it says:

Father not expected to live any longer. No news beyond. Father died at 11 o'clock this morning.

A strangely disjointed addition. I guess that this handwriting was from John's sister Hannah although she was in Buxton on this day. Other possible people who might have written these extra entries are Alberta and Hannah's husband Alfred Hordern. In any case, it is curious as to why another person has written in John's diary.
