Quite a pretty day. Bake walked in the garden after breakfast and saw three squirrels and caught two beautiful ones. She was perfectly enraptured. They became gentle directly. – – Gave Nan quinine this morning. She is well enough for me to accompany Hardie to spend the evening with Mag. Brought some ice back for Nan. Mrs. Slaughter was kind enough to send her, but her fire was entirely off when we returned.
