Irvie went off canvassing with Jimmie and the Buckboard this morning. I did several odd jobs around home during the forenoon. Practiced writing a little also. This afternoon I wet up to the Institute and heard a Prof. talk about Penmanship. I liked his writing on the board pretty well, but think he flourished too much for business. Irvie and I went up town thinking there was a lecture tonight, but had to come back as there was none. It has been pretty hot today.
