Saturday, Feb 18, 1888 Has snowed a little in the night but is mild and threatening. Received a note from Philips & Wells last evening saying that Mr. Sanderson can not at present consider the purchase of our place. Went home by the 10 oclock train. The snow was melting and the roads full of water at home. I found cousin Rachel with Sara. Commenced a letter to Lucy. Sara had had one from her with extracts from one she had received from Laura, in the same vein of being the aggrieved and injured party. Sara, Rachel and I went over to the toboggan slide in the evening and Sara and I rode with Geo Coykendall and his wife until ten oclock. It was just freezing a little and we had an enjoyable evening. There was quite a company there.
