Tuesday, 23rd January, 1866

Found the ground covered with snow this morning. Bill is having some corn shucked. Zac rode Fannie to school, but the Col. didn’t teach. – – I made some peach puffs and mince pies today. – – Martha’s knitting a pair of stockings for Nan. Caught her this morning at a very bad trick. Stole a lot of spun cotton out of the chamber closet and hid it in the passage downstairs. – – Patsy’s spinning white wool.
