Cleared off at evening with a high wind from N.W. and cold in the night. This morning Katahdin is white with snow half way down and blowing great guns from N.W. the lake angry with white caps. Went up to the clearing Church is making where is a fine view of Katahdin. Wrote to Alice, finished Saras letter, Gussies telling her I was coming. The Giffords have determined to leave for home tomorrow but Mary is to stay.
