I went up town to mail some letters this morning. Called at Mr. Waters and told them of the death of Munnis. Jessie Neill has been here all day helping Kate do her Saturday’s cooking. It began to rain shortly after noon and had kept it up ever since and is raining hard tonight, and Jessie will have to stay all night. I have been practicing flourishing for an hour tonight.
