January THURSDAY 5 1893

Snow has been falling nearly all day; but Fred and I have kept on at our work in the woods notwithstanding. The weather still keeps cold and stormy. We seem likely to have a severe old fashioned winter after all. Have continued to feel some what cast down But have been reminded that the Lord raisith all those the be bowed down Shall he not also help me.
