Finished papering the kitchen this morning, sawed a little wood also. Practiced on the songs for the concert. Drew the rest of the manure out on the garden this afternoon. Carried the baby over to Mrs. Neill’s for Kate and then went up to Mr. Olion’s to see him but he was absent. The concert came off tonight and everything went off real well. Prof. Greenlee leaves tomorrow; we have all enjoyed the institute and hope to see him again. It is freezing tonight.
