The rich carpet of leaves the gorgeous colors speak home to the heart. Will I ever spend another sabath [sic] in the old house. 31st This afternoon Lizzie and I rode to Troy Corners. It was quite cold. Nov. 1st Mary and I came down to day and home again to night. 2nd This evening Eva Mary & I called at Mr. Gillettes and spent the evening at Mr. Spears. 3rd Butchered to day very busy lonely and homesick to night.
