I arose this morning and built the fires, then I took Freds snow skiis and went over to our house on them. (When I write our I mean Kate and mine.) I t was a lovely day although, Fred and I went to church this forenoon. We did not stay to Sunday school. Charlie and Grace were here to dinner and spent the afternoon. I wrote a letter to Kate this afternoon. Went over to Fred Waters on Fred Neill’s snow skiis tonight. It is but a little way across. I did not stay long. I read H.W. Beecher’s last sermon today. I am glad that I am to get my papers regular now. It is a fine evening. Wind not since early morning.
