It has not been a pleasant day, being windy and chilly. I have been digging for a cellar all day, and am rather tired in consequence of so going. My front teeth have been very tender today and pained badly at times. I don’t like to have toothache and such things just now if I am to teach. I am going up in the morning to see what is to be done about it.
