Sunday, Mar 25, 1883 Went home by 3.30 train last night. Tom met me. Found my mother about the same. Downing and I took a long walk along under the hill to steep Rocks, then up the road crossing to the Roa-tina over which he walked on the ice while I went around. It was a sunny day and the snow was melting rapidly and the river was open a mile above and below the ferry.
