I got up and made the fires this morning and shaved before breakfast. It was cold this morning. I went over and sawed wood all the forenoon. Mr. Olson and Mr. Huntington finished cutting up 10 cords of wood for me this forenoon and I paid them for it. I had to come right home after school and write the names of the charter members of the new G.A.R. Post being bargained here today, on their Charter is a comrade asked me if I would and of course I would.
