I got up his morning and built the fires. Wrote my copies and the most of a letter to Kate before breakfast. I went over to our house and painted all this forenoon. My classes at the College were small today and I expect they will be smaller the next two days. I sent Kate a Money Order for $25 today. Went to the store and posted the books after school. Mr. Case is not going away this week. He asked me what I could work half the time in the store for if he should want me. I got a letter from ma and another note from Nellie with a paper pattern of the baby’s hand. I went up to Mr. Small’s and ate Maple “Wax” this evening. They had a good company, but I didn’t stay long.
