The boys and I have continued to work at the cellar under the tennant house to day as usual. Do not feel quite satisfied with our progress however, it seems to take us so long. Ma went out to Dover this afternoon and brought home Mifs Ida Skinner with her. We propose to take the latter to our Simcoe to morrow; and, to church while there. The weather has been very cold and blustery, but seems to be geting milder.
