I practiced writing considerable today. Picked some apples just before and after dinner. I hitched up and went up town this afternoon and Kate went over to Neill’s and stayed while I was gone. I got no mail but my paper tonight. The baby is having a panic this evening for some cause. There was quite a hard frost this morning, but the tomato vines that we covered last night seemed as much damaged as the others.
