When we got up this morning we found the weather mild and the thermometer going up fast. It has thawed a good deal today and the snow has gone down considerable. Fred went to the lumber camp this morning, and left the care of his colts to me, but I cam afraid his father is going to bother me about the feed ete. I went up town right away after dinner as I heard the mail came last night. I got a good, long letter from my darling Kate, and I feel better for it. I helped the Dr. get a table over to my classroom so the scholars are better accommodated now. I got a Bill of the books ordered of W. & R. Have been writing to Kate tonight, and must write to Will Cooper.
