Things were pretty well frozen up this morning and I am afraid our apples will many of them spoil soon in consequence of it. I went up to the college this morning but found that my room was not ready and I could not teach today. I came home and went at the cellar and have worked hard at it all day. I have it nearly ready for the roof. It has continued to freeze all day and I may be getting the cellar too late.
