It tried to snow some this morning but quit before any amount fell. I sawed up some chunks for the big stove, this forenoon, and then I put a window light in the stable door so as to admit light for Jimmie. There was no school this afternoon on account of the dedication of the Church. I went up to the exercises and got my mail before coming home. It has not been a very pleasant day and is growing colder.
