January TUESDAY 10 1893

The weather has been very cold to day about Zero all day. Fred and I have been cuting wood in the woods this forenoon and this afternoon Fred has been spliting in the woods, except when makeing an axe-handle. Have been graciously strengthened of late by the Divine and Infinite. He does all things well.

January WEDNESDAY 11 1893

Fred and I have been cuting wood in the woods again to day. I have been doing some other work however between times, such as filing the saws &c. The very cold weather of last night and yesterday is apparently leaving us and a snow storm seems to be brewing. The winter is become quite old fashioned after all the many prophecies to the contrary.
