It has been quite warm all day and the snow has gone down a good deal.  The road was so soft that it was very heard walking when I came home tonight.  I took my dinner up to the store today and spent considerable time studying telegraphy.  I posted the books too and took a trial balance of the Town Treasures Books and balanced up his Ledger.  I went over to Mr. Waters and stayed to supper and went to choir practice at Mr. Green’s with winnie, they wanted me because Bert Coain had gone away.  I had a talk with Mr. Case today and I guess that I will not be wanted at the store all the time this year.  I don’t much care.
