Got up this morning and ate breakfast with Fred. I wrote a lot of copies and then finished reading Hiawathia[sic] which I think is a beautiful poem and I will want to read it again sometimes. I finished my letter to Kate also. Grace came over this morning and stayed through the day. I didn’t have any trouble in my classes today. The Prof. and Mr. James Case visited my class in Penmanship. I went to the Post Office after school and received a letter from Kate and the Leader. Also a packet of seed from D.M. Ferry & Co. they failed to send the Cardinal tomato I ordered. I shall write to them. I called at Mr. Waters and got my saw. It has been a mild day. Looks stormy tonight.
