Sunday January 6, 1895

Cold, stormy day. Snow and rain, freezing.

Have not been to church as I was afraid to go on the icy walks, and of taking more cold. Studyed a little in my Bible and wrote a long letter to George which I may not send, tho' it was a relief to write it. This afternoon had a long nap. My cold is about the same. The girls were good mostly during study hour. Had to shut Bourdon up again. Sent down a responce for this evening & have not been to communion in a long time. Up to breakfast.


  1. These are beautiful and fascinating to read. I love how 'bloggy' they are.

    Fuddyduddies who complain that blogs have corrupted and degraded the long-lost art of journal writing can read this diary and see that the more things change, the more they stay the same, as they say.

  2. This is a great project. I'm hooked already. What was Helen's situation at the time of writing her diary do you know? What was the job for which she received the 'rest of her salary'?

    And George! Very interesting.
