8th Father is anxious I should be inspected and I had intended to look over my studies to day but Uncle Frank’s people came down and put an end to it. 9th Well, I have been at B--- all day, inspected and got a ticket & came home with sick headache. 10th Most sick. A rainy cold day. 11th Warm and pleasant. I have been very busy washing, cleaning house, working out of doors. I have been trying to answer a letter of Mr. Cuckeon this evening but I am too tired. There was a man here to get me to teach Wing Lake school, the one Gus was to teach. I shall not take it nor any if I don’t get the one at B.
