A rainy morning. Rained most of the night. The trees was covered in ice this morning. Not heavy enough to brake them. Josie baked a cake for Nellie. Nellie dressed a chicken to take home with her. I let her have some butter. They borrowed Norman Bookers buggy and started home a bout two oclock in the evening. It has not rained since they left. I do hope that they got to Gretna in time to take the train. At this time the roads is very bad. None of feel good and the wether is depressing on a well person. We should be thankful of the good that we have.
