Then Josie and Kate and I picked them tonight. Ben and Jim packed them in a barrel. Ready to send off. Josie and I made some bats and set by the fire all we could. The children is still improveing.
A very colde morning. The coldest of the winter so far. Ben warmed up his car and got it cranked and carried the barrel of fowls to the island. He had a rough trip. I am very glad that it has bin made. They cut some this evening. It was so colde that no one could do much. Hattie Gilbent washed here today
A very colde day. The men did not work much. They shucked a shock of corn and fed the stalks to the cows. Henry went to school. Edna is complainy and have not bin to school this week. Hugh Brumfield has bin sick all of this week. Josie went to Mr Bookers a little while this evening. The weather is so bad that that no one can do much but stay by the fire and then cant keep warm. I think now that if live to see warm weather I will be so glad.
A very bad day it was snowing this morning when we got up and it is snowing yet 8 o clock at night. It is drifted in places so that any one cant hardly go through it.

Our mail carrier did no come today. We mis the mail. There was no school today.
