A cold, rainy, disagreeable day till about noon. Hardie felt well enough this evening to have an hour or two play and fun with Liv and Mack, running and exercising.1Leo and Mack are family dogs. – – Bartlett burnt the chimneys.2Anyone have an idea what Bartlett was doing? Let Frederick have the day to shoemake for himself. – – The hands are getting wood for Xmas.
