Practiced writing some this morning. Cultivated the front yard and leveled it off with the spade so that I think it will do now and I shall let it grow up to grass. I went to the church this afternoon and helped do some sheeting. Received a letter from ma tonight. Called at the Dr. and got some of the new circulars advertising the College School. Came home by Neill’s and found Kate there. I feel tired someway.
