21st A very good day. Tired and sleepy.
22nd Washingtonâ€™s birthday. Kalamazoo did fire a salute but this school could not afford to stop. Never did the clouds of war hover so darkly round our land since the immortal one gave it freedom.

I hate to but I canâ€™t study so hard and I do dislike them so. In Rhetoric Proff. Holden read from Pope. Then I had to go down to hear them read compositions.
