Fryday, Jan, 15th 1886

When I came in the school room today Pearl was laughing fit to kill, she said that she hunted the house over and could not find her books, and did not think of them till she started to school. Maggie didn't go to school today. As we were coming home from school we found a dead dog that had been hung.
Pa and Ma are gone to Jonesboro. It rained today, and the snow is melting fast.
