Sunday, Jan 6, 1884 The cold weather continues, but today is bright and charming. I remained at home and wrote to Alice. Sara had a letter from Lucy announcing the arrival of the pictures of our mother for which Lucy was most grateful. She had written me in N. Y. The ferry boat is running but the ice is strong. People skating on the river and ice cutting begun on the creek. The moonlight on the glazed snow is charming and I have made some notes of it with reference to a picture.
