Extremely cold, and blustering, a few flakes of snow fell.

We all kept within doors to.day. The weather was so unpleasant, so cold, and so blustering, I did not venture out. Garret, has a shocking cold in his head. Julie, Remsen, and I, are also afflicted with the same complaint. Our fireside seemed the most prudent place for us to. day. I endeavored to improve myself as well as the children, but my efforts seem almost unavailing as G. does not assist me in my task either by instruction, or example. Parents should assist each other in the responsible duties of educating their offspring.
