Did some pen work this forenoon. Richard Robins and wife came just about noon and made us a visit; I had to leave them and go to my teaching this afternoon. After school Mr. Harvey and I went over to the store and got a transom window belonging above the door to my room and put it in place also fixing the stovepipe. I practiced flourishing this evening, and finished a piece of Pen work for Mr. Montgomery, which is to hang in the post office window.
