The ground was covered with snow this morning. The first of real winter we have had. They stripped tobacco most of the day. A load of tobacco passed here this morning through the snow. They seemed to be making it fine. The children went to school. I think some of them has a colde from going in the snow. Henry got home last night some where a bout midnight. Said he eat supper at Aunt Caries. Said Reese fell and hurt his arms. I hope he may soon be well. Ben went to Mr. Allen's this evening. Will Allen and his wife moved to their selves to day.
