Kate did not feel able to go to church, so I went again today. Fred Neill went with me. I was writing this afternoon when Fred came along and asked me to go out to his farm with him; we went on horse back and came back around by the lake and took a good bath. I intended to write to ma, but I think I will have to wait until tomorrow now.
