It was a pleasant morning and Kate, Una and I drove up town to get the jar of butter that ma sent us, and so several other errands. We called at Dr. Taylor’s. I received a letter from Prof. Farley of Trenton, N.J. in which he praised my writing; I was much pleased to get encouraging words from so high a source. Worked on the cellar the remainder of the forenoon. Taught at the college this afternoon. Have been writing this evening. We sent 2 of Una’s pictures home today.
