Began a letter to pa this morning. I shaved, went over to my house after a pair of cuffs and then Fred and I went to church. Mr. Waters preached a temperance sermon, with strong political news. We didn’t stay to Sunday school. It has been a moderate day, and began to snow hard towards evening. Fred has gone up to a temperance lecture tonight. I stayed home to write to Kate. I finished the letter to pa also. Did some singing and some playing on the organ this afternoon. Have had popcorn to eat all day. No school tomorrow so I will not have to teach.
