Manuscripts/Mixed Material Journal by Alexander Graham Bell, from September 2, 1901 to October 29, 1901
1901, Oct. 4 Fri. At B.B.
Miss Graham Bell and Miss Safford returned Tuesday evening (Oct. 1). Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert H. Grosvenor left Thursday evening (Oct. 3) for the Grand Narrows. Marian accompanied them and will go on a short distance on the way. They are to visit the Embree Bros. at Port Hawksbury with the object of getting them to build us a sailing boat with cabin accommodations for camping out purposes.
Dr. Gillett died in Jacksonville, Ill. Wednesday, Oct. 2. Received telegram yesterday, Thurs., Oct. 3 inviting me to the funeral, which is to be today. Unfortunately distance too great. Couldn't reach there for two or three days after the funeral.
