Thursday April 23, 1914
A hard west wind all night and all day going down with the sun. Quite a scale of ice on the pond this morning. All we could do to keep fire enough to keep warm. Mora and Maud went to school. Maud brought me a letter from Sidney p.m. then she went to P.O. and got some Oil, a head of cabbage and a # of onions. She mailed a letter for me to Larkin Soap. Mora went to the mill and got some corn. Mrs. Boots gave her some scraps for the chickens and a stick of lemon candy she brought it home and divided with the rest. Lillian coughs awful for several days and nights too, measely cough.
