Monday the twenty fifth
A rather dull day. The sun comes out once in a while but more clouds than sun + the wind is quite heavy. Clarence works from two o’clock untill midnight so we may have some quiet. Edith has a bad cold + Audrea’s cold is not much better. Mine is about the same. I wish I had nothing more to worry me. Amozelle came in this p.m. + shortly after poor Mrs. Baldwin came in after Amozelle left she told her troubles, that she has brought them on herself does not seem to be any comfort to her indeed it is worse. “If I had known if I had dreamed this weight was made for me I would have made a lighter cross to bear up Calvary”. No one can help her but herself. Amozelle says Aunt “Min” is coming tomorrow. I’m very sorry for we not feel like waiting on company. perhaps Amos + May will come at the same time which would be delightful.
