I wrote some cards this forenoon and helped Kate a little about the washing. Went over and helped Fred Neill saw wood this afternoon. It has been snowing more or less all day. Read aloud from the book on the Mound Builders, for an hour this evening, it is very interesting, and instructive. I did not go after the mail tonight, as I didn’t expect any letters.
