Worked up some wood this morning and drew it up to the house. Made some steps to the cellar and threw a lot of dirt on its roof. Taught my classes at the College this afternoon. It rained some this evening when I was coming come. I am becoming dissatisfied with my place here and want to go out somewhere else in the world. I whish I could sell the farm and go to come Penman’s school.
