Final draft[]

Today is Janice's birthday, baby sister, she was twelve years old.

It was nice and clear and not too cold. We were busy again at the mill.

Supper was pretty good with sourkraut heading the menu.

There was no prayer meeting at the church but the young people met with the intention of having choir practice and board meeting. There were not enough of the choir there to practice but we had a shivering board meeting over the register with Romaine slamming and Mary Jane winking.
