Both the men & myself have been working away at the cellar wall again this to day. Out progress is some what slow and the prospects are that this week will scarcely complete the job. The weather has been very cold and disagreeable to day, but we did not feel it at our work very much. Went down to William Wattses this evening, Ma and Ida haveing gone this afternoon. Had a very pleasant evening visit.

Continued to help at the cellar again this forenoon as usual, & both of the men as well. C. I went down to Mr. John Menche's of Nanticokes this evening takeing Mifs Ida with me, and Bertha. Our visit was to see the deer of which Mr. Mencke has seventeen altogather. We attended the lecture of a Rev. Mr Rogson of New York City in our chuch at Port Dover this evening. Were somewhat disappointed, on account of what I have heard.
