I bought the most of my things over to our house today and am going to live here now. I took dinner at Neill’s but ate my supper here. Mrs. Neill gave me some butter and I brought over a couple of our cans of fruit. I have had the pony here all day grazing around tied to a stake. I went up town this forenoon and some me some things. Called at Mrs. Water’s a little while. I don’t seem to accomplish anything of any account. I will be glad when Kate gets here. I went up town again tonight to mail a letter to Kate and get the mail. Jessie Neill and I ordered a fence pump together. I am going to sleep in our house tonight.
