It turned cold last night and has been squalling all day; sometimes the snow became quite visible on the ground. I finished my job of bookkeeping at the court house this forenoon and received my pay for the same. Went up town tonight and got the mail. Called at Mr. Waters a little while to see Fred about getting some potatoes of him. It is a rather rough night out.
