Thursday, Nov 8, 1883 The weather continues very pleasant. I put in the remainder of the glass in the cellar windows. While I was busy Mr. Lindsley drove up with old Mr. Tomkins who is in his ninety second year. We wanted him to stay to dinner but he was too busy--had to draw a plan for something they were going to do at the mill. He is in perfect health and has all his faculties. I trimmed some of the apple trees near the well. Henry and Tom are getting the roots in to the new root cellar. Joe left for N. Y. on his way home. Downing joins him tomorrow and Gussie will remain here.
