Memphis, Tennessee

My son Willy is very sick with fever. Ellen and I were with him all day on the steamer Atlantic. We finally steamed into Memphis at 10:30 tonight. I carried Willy ashore to a room at the Gayoso House. After we put him to bed, I summoned 2 doctors I know from my previous time in Memphis who came to examine him and do what they can to cure his disease.
