Another sunless day. Bill started two plough, but found it too wet to continue. Put the hands at something else. – – Hardie killed two ducks today. I cut out and made a jeans bodice to my flannel and put it on the skirt today. Nan improves very much in drawings. I believe she is more fond of it than any other study she has. I must limit her time in future. She occupies entirely too much in that branch. – – Patsy spinning white wool for counterpanes.
