The snow is melting off rapidly. The rain continues through the day. No school again today. I finished my flannel this morning I commenced turning yesterday. Nan is knitting socks and gloves. The latter she is knitting on some for sale, I believe. She is right industrious for a child as much devoted to reading as she is. – – Hardie’s reading “Abbott’s Life of Napoleon,” Bill Josephus. – – I doubled up some knitting and sewing cotton for Martha to twist. – – The hands are shucking corn again today.
