Finished writing a letter to Kate this morning and wrote a short one to ma and one to Effie. Practiced writing the rest of the forenoon, went over to our house and got a few things. Took a shave. Taught writing this afternoon as usual, had 3 new students. I will have to write a good supply of copies. I called on Prof. Dolly after school to talk about the coming catalogues. The weather was not cold this afternoon although the wind was northwest. I have been writing copies tonight, and preparing to study some in Bookkeeping. Well, all are in bed, but Fred and I and so I must propose to him that we retire.
