Quite a pretty day. Bill having the lot fence put up. He and Hardie walked to the C. H. after taking a snack and returned at dark. Zac came in about the same time from school. – – Martha cleaned the dining room floor this evening. – – Found Bake’s muslin quilt put away with my damask curtains. I began to think it had been stolen, having hunted every place as I thought for it. – – Nan and I are repairing different articles. I am about a coat for Bill, badly torn by a hog in the fattening pen before Xmas. – – Nan thinks she had a chill today. Patsy washed.
