Monday, Feb 14, 1887 A cold night. I found the mercury on our back porch at 1 degree below zero this morning at 7. I came away with the 7.40 train and came near missing it. Found the carpenter at work and his painters getting ready to color my walls. This going to Dr. Taylors is a nuisance now when I want to attend to the work in my rooms. I saw Nannie there who thinks she is improving.
