A beautiful white frost last night and a lovely day. Bell brought over her oil can and a note for Maud to leave at Homer Bryant's on her way to school for Claud Davy. Memphis cry'd because I did not have time to fix her old shoes so she could go to school this morning. Bell told me she had a pair too small and wanted Memphis to come over and see if they would fit her. They were not much too large. I had to sew all the buttons on, so she went p.m. Maud Cronan and Helen also Lettie Bryant and her two babies spent a part of the afternoon here. Lettie brought Mora to school this a.m. and she rode home with her tonight. I mailed the letter to Mr. Higley, Syracuse Y.M.C.A.

Another frost, awfully cold morning but a fair day. A big hawk came through the window this morning at 6:30, breaking a big pane. Not a piece left in that side of the sash. Frightened us all about to death. I got hold of it but it was too quick and got away going back through the hole it made. Mrs. House and Harry and Curtis came over this eve. and nailed some shingles in until they could get a light of glass. Bell came nearly dark and brought a little milk. We got a can of milk and 10# graham off of Mr. Wilson. Sold 2 doz. eggs at .28c/doz. Memphis went to school only p.m. Rec'd a card from Mr. Higley, wrote him a letter, could not send it.
