Still living in Caryville. There are only a handful of entries. By now, Andrew is quite ill. His official diagnosis was chronic interstitual nephritis/Bright's Disease, both of which were heavily-used but not particularly specific terms at the time. In other words, something was wrong with his kidneys. He died later in the year.

Corilda herself suffered a series of small strokes later in life, and the diaries suggest problems even at this point. She died in 1931.
