It was cold this morning, 11o above 0 and it has been about there all day and is going to lower tonight. I got Mr. Morrow’s sleigh this forenoon and drew the rest of the wood up. I have it all under cover now. I engaged Mrs. Bilderback to come and do Kate’s washing tomorrow; her thumb is too sore to do such work. Went up town and got the mail and sent an order to Kibbe for pens and paper. Rode home with Mr. Huntington.
