Nellie seems to be getting along as well as could be wished for so far. The Dr. came in to see Kate this morning. The baby seems to be fretful from some cause the most of the day. I went home about 10 o’clock and shaved, took a bath etc., stayed to dinner and then I came back to help Kate. I sawed a little wood for our stove this afternoon. It has been another pleasant day. I saw Geo. Martin a few minutes, as he was on his way to Dexter. Henry borrowed my clock tonight so as to have an alarm to wake him up. I feel sleepy tonight.
