Thus closes my notes for the month of December and also for the year just passed and gone and now numbered with the things that were. Whether the Almighty will spare me to chronicle the daily events of the incoming year is more than I know but trusting in Him I shall enter upon the pleasing task, which is useful as a reference and may be profitable to those who have an interest in me.
To day I purchased some articles at the sale of the effects of W. F. WALL decd. and in the evening returned home and found the little woman well. Still planting corn. weather clear & pleasant but cool with frost at night.
