Kate did her washing this forenoon and I amused the baby and practiced writing. Built a jack to cut up corn on and I cut some fodder corn this afternoon. The baby has been sick all the afternoon; it is caused by teething and a bad cough. I went up town tonight to mail a letter to ma and do a little trading. It has been warmer today with the wind in the south. It was cool tonight though.
