He and Hardie started about 4, drove George to the buggy. – – Martha ironed today. Nan sold Washington a pair of gloves for $1, knit on a bone three double. – – We necessarily have to pit a lamb. The mother has two beautiful lambs and disowns one of them, and I am not willing to see it die, it is so fine and beautiful a lamb. That is the second instance of this kind we have had this winter.
