Found it snowing this morning. Notwithstanding, Bill was out early and had corn shelled and cotton packed and weighed to send the machine and mill 175 pounds cotton and 14 bushels corn sent by the wagon. – – He and Willie Turner rode up for the mail. We waited dinner till 4, but they did not come till near night. Brought me a letter from Mary, and Bake one from the vicinity. – – Nan stitched up Hardie’s pants and one piece of Bill’s and Pigeo the other. – – Parky made the skirt.
