Tuesday, 29th January, 1867

The cold weather continues. Bill rode to the C. H. Court in session again today. Mr. Slaughter wishes to have the use of some men e.g., but is not prepared to receive it. – – Hardie remained at home till the afternoon when he accompanied Misses Cooke and Acree (who had been on a visit here) to call on Miss Cary at “White Bank,” Mr. Norment’s teacher. They remained till after tea and Hardie stayed till some time during the night. Bill returned to supper. Pigeo pretends to be principal in the dining room this week. She is teaching Mollie with great assiduity. She improves very fast.
