It turned cool today with quite a breeze from the north. I have been at the store all day. Was making out an itemized account all my spare time. I begin to get interested in listening to the telegraph instrument again. I like to work at the store pretty well, but my place don’t improve when I am away. A person can’t do two things at one time. Got home later than usual tonight.
