10th This morning Mr. Hill had to go away. Between ten and eleven Mary called and we went to see about that ride. Decided to go to night with a sleigh and after a variety of doings the time came and we stashed ten in the sleigh. Raining, no kind of sleighing, and to cap it all out we could not drive one step out of the walk. When at length we arrived wet and dripping we found that Frank was at the center. Lockwood and I went for her. The evening passed very pleasantly when we came home it was snowing and was lighter. All passed off very well considering.
