I was in the house the most of the forenoon careing[sic] for the baby so that Kate could do her washing. I wrote to Prof. Farley for sample of Guide and Copy Slips as I wish to examine them with reference to using them in teaching next winter. Irvie and I went to the lake this afternoon to fish but caught nothing, so we waded around the inlet building dams and being boys again in earnest. We went up town and got our mail tonight. I received a beautifully written letter from a Chicago penman.
