It was only 10 above 0 this morning.  I wrote copies and practiced this forenoon. Went to Scio with pa, after a  grist this afternoon. As we were unloading,  Rock got scared. Kicked pa terribly, threw me out of the buggy and then ran away. I thought pa was killed, but he came to and I brought him home. I talked on penmanship tonight in the school house at Blodgettes.
