The snow and hail are going off rapidly. I am afraid the roads will be bad after it. I fixed up a box for Bake today. Bill has an idea of going to Richmond, will take Bake’s box to Adams Express. Articles in the box, one yarn counterpane and a quilt, two pair pillow cases, two dresses, sausages, dried peaches, damsons, ground peas and other nuts, book of recipes, &c. – – Patsy washed today.
