A fine sun. shine, but cold as winter. I set out after breakfast to make some purchases. shoes, gloves, ribbon, mitts, and cape for self, 5$. the latter. Returned home tired out. Took the children again after dinner to find shoes to suit me. We came home quite cold, and glad to get to the fire. Packed our trunks, and went early to.bed, to be ready for an early start in the morning.
