We have a great deal of cold, cloudy weather, though the earth is saturated with water from the recent heavy rains. Servants can do but little on the farm, though we are hiring and finding them. – – Hardie remained at home today. The rest of us attended Zion, Bill on Fannie, Zac drove the carriage. Carried Stuart. He behaved remarkably well. Returned by Ju’s and spent the rest of the day. They insisted on my leaving Stuart. They had missed him so much. He is a sweet, interesting child. Bill returned home to dinner. Patsy cooked this week.
