10th Sewing and busy. 11th To night went up to singing school but there is no one there to have a train with at all. 12th Cold. Doing housework and sewing. Rainy and cold. 13th At church this morning. O I do get so homesick and lonely here. I have been talking with father about going to school. I do not see as I am any nearer going than I was the first September. I will do any way and any thing if I can only go. I wish I knew what was best for me to do. To give it up entirely or to try and go. Eva & I went to Mr. T for books. At church this evening.
