Monday, Jan 2, 1882 Cold and brilliant. I spent most of the day in my room braiding birch bark for our first hat which I am anxious to have made up to see what we are to do next. Bowyer, Gertrude Tomkins, Joe, Maurice and Jamie went out to the same place to skate and had a delightful time getting home to a 3 oclock dinner. I sat up until midnight working on my braid. Bowyer came back to town with the evening train.
