Rested very well last night and have felt some better today. I went up town this forenoon and got the mail. The stove I ordered is at the store I think we will like it. Will Cast came over today noon and brought his books for me to find a trial balance, which he had not succeeded in doing. I got them all straight this afternoon and took them back to him. I wish I could have lots of such work to do. I think I would like to be an expert accountant. It has turned warmer, froze hard last night.
