nevertheless & get up earlier. Maybe I have depended too much upon the mere act of forming a resolution. How much easier it is to form resolutions than it is to carry them out. Wednesday 25th Today I came to the mill. It is nearly a mile from our house to the mill, so far the sawyers will have to be boarded in this house which is near by it. We have a girl engaged to come out Monday to cook for them till then I think I can manage it is so much expense for the mill to stop while they go to their meals. So I shall have this house to keep instead of ours. It will be good exercise for me going from one to the other. I think is is more pleasant here than where we live. We are going to move here altogether as soon as we can get a house large enough to hold us all.
