A very cold day and all are about sick with colds. Sidney is very hoarse. George Piquet brought Mora's [page ripped] and it is a very nice one, the products were all OK. I have the four mouse traps set, we have had a good fire all day but have not been able to start the frost from the front window, altho the sun helped to melt the frost from the south window. Too cold for comfort with coal fire, altho our little speckled hen did not get frightened out but came in and layed as usual.
