Tuesday 28 A most beautiful morning Amozelle called in the morning but did not sit down as full of business as she could hold. Thought we might go out tonight but it is clouding up fast + also it is 4 o’clock Clarence is not here yet so I guess we stay at home + I’ll read the “Depot Master” aloud + after the rest have gone to bed look over the papers + follow the rest of the family. I shelled some clams last night + [envied] them
