A colde snowy day. Has snowed nearly all day. We all set around the fire most of the day. I milked and churned and fed the chickens. Josie got dinner. She cooked some beans. The Edmons tried to have a dance to night. It is so bad I dont expect that they could get a crowd. Ben & Josie has gone down there. They walked. I feel uneasy about them and will until they come back.

Franklin has waked up and I will be glad when they get back.
