I went up to the store this morning and tried to telegraph to the Frankfort operator that I could not get there but I couldn’t tell whether he got it or not. I [sic] has blown and stormed all day. I guess March is going out like a lion, as it came in like a lamb. I had a talk with Mr. Case about the business I have been talking about. He don’t know yet for certain that he will go. I called on Fred Waters as I came home after dinner. I wrote a letter to pa this afternoon. Went up and got the mail tonight – received a letter from Kate mailed the 24th, and one from ma mailed the 25th telling me about my little daughter. Ma says she is pretty. It is cold tonight.
