Final draft[]

It was still cold this morning as could be expected. That always makes a person anxious to get out of bed, and how!

We were busy at the mill -- not just trying to keep warm, but plain busy. Customers must have thought we had a holiday yesterday.

After supper Mamma B. and the kids came to see us and ours. Reba, Jack and Joyce also came. Hersh and I played chess most of the time and others sat and read. Re. & Jack had to see the place for were not here before. Late when we retired.
