Snowed and rained all day and at night it powdered. We had planned to go to Wilmot to the masquerade dance, but it rained so John Waspi came up and spent the evening. We finished the parlor. Got a letter from pa saying he arrived in Kirksville Wednesday at 9:30 A.M. Mr. Binnaman of Slades Corners was here and took dinner with us.
