I sawed some wood in the slashing this morning. Irvie off to canvass again. I gave a little time to the practice of Penmanship. Irvie came back at noon. We all went up to Mr. Waters and spent the afternoon taking tea there. Willie, Irvie and I went down to crystal lake and had a good swim. Tonight I looked Irvie’s pictures over and gave him an order for $5.00 worth of nursery stock. We had considerable fun.
