It rained all last night and for some time this morning. I wrote a letter to Will Stevens and did a little practicing this forenoon. I put casing on a couple of windows up stairs. This afternoon I put battens on the barn so as to keep the wind off from Jimmie. It has been blowing a gale all day and is at it tonight. I went to the organization of the singing class this evening and then went to a reception for the new Prof. and his wife at Mr. Waters’ for a little while. Ordered some Billheads for Will Case.
