1.

January. 1899.

[left margin: Sun. 1. Clear. Cold.] New Years morning was bright, clear and beautiful. Cousin Mary and Charlie left right after breakfast. Father and Mother were invited to Mr. Ed. [illegible] to dine, but it was so cold. No track broken thru the snow, and so much to tend at home they gave it out. Hot water pipe froze and broke-- No one here all day. The stars were grand at night. Arion, Sirious, Prueyors, Mars, and what I suppose is the the sickle in Leo, so brilliant, and different from the warm soft summer constillations that Mrs. Pilling and I learned to watch and know.

[left margin: Mon. 2. Clear. Cold.] The coldest morning this winter. The ther- mometer 3 above here. But 10 below in Bleve. 9 at Della Brooke, and 6 at Brooke Meadow. Agnes washed. George went home to visit for a month, and Newman came in his place. In the morn. Wm, I and Aunt Patti called a few minutes after dinner. The men were out in the woods. Ms. Joe Hortton and Mr. Hiram Hobbs called to see Father and the cattle. Quiet evening. Jarvis children came to telephone for Ms. Diel.
