Saturday, Jan. 16 1886.

It turned colder today, rained and snowed both. I worked most of the morning, and in the afternoon I read. After supper we (Walter, Clint and I) played "Authers", and then went to bed.

Sunday, Jan 17 '86.

I staid [[stayed]] at home all day today, dident [[didn't]] do anything but clean up this morning. This after noon I sat and listened to the girls read, although I was aiming to learn to skate on Calvins skates. I had fun just after dinner, cutting up with Emma. It has been moderately cold today. The girls fellows came here this evening, they went to church tonight but it was crowded so that they couldent [[couldn't]] get in, and came back home, that is what they said any-how.
