20 They [sic] sleighing has all departed but I thought I must show some of it so Lucy & [I] went up to see Almira. Had a pleasant visit. Went to Lyceum. Had a good debate. Frank called at the gates. 21st A beautiful sunny day. Mother and I called on Mrs. Stickney. Will came over to night & I have promised to go to the party with him. I would like to go and yet I would not. This evening I was intending to study. Albert came in and was helping me about some examples when in came Steve. So my studying had to be done after ten.
