It is trying to snow but has not made out much yet. Carrie Green, Cora Hopkins and Persus Morgan were here yesterday all day. Last night we all but Persus went up to Mead’s station to a singing school with Adin Swan and Eugene Swan. We had a gay time. I never laughed so much in my life. Cora Hopkins had quite an accident happen to her. Harrison Loghry came back yesterday and is going to work for Father this summer for $20 a month. That is cheap for these war times. Lincoln has called for 800,000 men since last October. Monday night Anna Swan and Eugene, Achsah Chandler and Hattie Taylor were over here. We had a game of backgammon. Eugene says he is coming over tomorrow night and go to singing school with me.
I wrote to May this forenoon. Father is going down to Genoa this afternoon. I hope he will get me a letter from some one (i.e.) John Hall.
