To day Father [Joshua James Hall], Burt [Roberta Downes Halyard nee Hall] and Toby [Horace Oscar Hall] came up to see Nellie* [Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire] who is something better. They spent the day and remained all night except Father who returned home. Dr. Murchison left for home in the morning. Weather changeable and cool, with a hard frost at night.
