Kate intended to go to church this forenoon, but she had a bad headache and could not go so I went riding up in our Buckboard. The baby has been freting[sic] about all day. I went over to Neill’s after dinner and took Fred my newspaper to read. His sister from Kansas is there with her two children. I wrote a letter to Scott Williams this afternoon, and also directed some catalogues of the College School to friends. Jimmie hurt his foot yesterday with his rope and today he seemed considerable lame. I bathed it good tonight. Fred Neill was here a while this evening. It has been a very pleasant day.
