Snowed a gain last night. This morning was very colde. Ben milked the cows for me and fed the calf. Jim and Ben stripped tobacco. Henry did not go to school. He made pathes a round to several places. I fed the chickens and brought some water. I have 18 little chickens for the hawk I am a fraid. We cooked dinner in the dining room by the fire place. Wood is scarce for the range.

The little baby has bin very cross. She has a colde. I hope she wont get sick and they can all keep well. I beg for strength and patience to stand what I have to.

Hope that some day I can go but so many things happen. I may never go a gain. Eula Mayhew is home tonight to stay with Edna. Mr Mayhew got his truck in mud so that Jim & Ben had to help him get it out.
