Very cold. Hardie rode to the C. H. after taking a snack of partridge pie left yesterday. Bought me another pound soda, through mistake. Bill got a pound last week. I made a comfort today, except tacking it and Nan repaired a rug. – – Bill came in and took a snack and returned again to where the hands were getting wood. Zac walked to school. – – Nan finished a letter to Bake. Studies very well, considering she would do much better to be classed with others. She commenced “Peunocks History of Rome” today. Her other studies are Scholars Companion, Arithmetic, “Josephus,” writing and drawing.
