We are all up quite early this morning, and Rose is busy fixing to start home. I shall miss her a good deal. Sent a pair of socks to her father. Gave Bill $20 to buy some things. – – Sent Bake’s box for Adams Express. – – He went in the buggy and drove George. Nan misses Rose a good deal, but she gets on very well with her studies. She made a nice baked custard, and I made an excellent bird pie for dinner. Zac returned early from school. – – Martha ironed today.
