Very cold. Water froze thick as window glass out to the apple-house – rained hard all day. Grandpa has been drawing boards and shingles from the saw-mill. Frank has been round the town buying apples. Rec’d card from mother. Mother W. has put up 5 cans of tomatoes. I washed and fixed a dress for Henry, partly made over Prescott’s shirt for Henry.
