Finished my letter to Kate this forenoon. I went over to the house and measured the stairs and sent her the dimensions so Nellie can get her a carpet. It thawed the most of today and almost rained about noon, but turned colder about sundown and froze up. It is not real cold though. I mailed a letter to Effie containing Bookkeeping references for the class there. Taught as usual this afternoon. I went up town tonight and attended the exercises of the literary club. It was a debate mostly. I changed my rubbers tonight as the ones I had hurt my feet so. My classes went off better today and I feel better about them tonight. Got my pens today from Boston.
