We have had a quiet New Years day. Very few callers. Alice and the baby quite ill. Mr. Knight did not come. Bowyer went back this evening. John and Nannie wanted us all to come over this evening but Lucy is ill, Sade and I attending Alice and the baby so that we could not go. Nannie sent Sara and me each a beautiful bouquet of flowers. I wrote a letter to Mr. Geo. H. Wells for Pa and also a letter to Church.
