& fetched Cinda home.

Wednesday 21st. Very high wind, with showers &c. I dipped candles, some 28 dozen. Anna Slocum came here in the morning & stayed all night.

Thursday 22nd. A showery day. Caroline & Isaac went over to the store. (N. Young's) Anna went over to N. Mann's. Cinda stayed at G.C. Taylor's all night, as also last night.

Friday 23d. Cloudy, windy & _muddy_! Cinda came home tonight, tired out almost.

Saturday 24th. Cinda had no school today & we have been looking for Ann all day as she has written she would come this morning. Isaac went down to meet her but we were doomed to disappointment. Cinda is worried, I am sorry for her, but hope for the best. David cam up with him & returned again to look for Ann, but she came not.
