A January has come at last and last night and to day it has been quite warm with rain the snow has settled down very fast. Did not go as we intended, to the funeral of my cousin Alice Olds. The roads were icy and did not have a horse shod as it did not seem possible to go far, under the circumstances. Have been trying to profit as far as possible with the opportunity for reading &c.
