We kept on working in the woods this forenoon, Fred and I . He also kept on this afternoon while I have been visiting my old friend W.J. Carpenter & wife with the Wallse's. The weather has been exceedingly cold and stormy all day, scarcely fit to work out of doors at all. We had a nice visit together however.
