Walked to Dexter and sent order for Book-keeping works this forenoon. Got some medicine for Bertha too. It began to snow about 11 o’clock and the ground is quite white now. I ran to Dexter tonight after the Dr. for Bertha. She was so bad we thought she would die. It is snowing fast and is cold.  *(R. Henry Scadin Collection, D.H.
