Helped Papa with his 5 minute job that takes 2 ½ hours. No one bothered me about my birthday….James appears rather solemn. Made the children quite a bit disappointed. A pleasant day with plenty of snow, cold as Greenland. Everybody is froze. Gave the scholars a talking to. All happy to think vacation is coming. Received prices for certain things. Did not get my carnations. My carnations came today. It's joking all the time. Papa has gone cowslipping. Poor little Everett hurt his eye. Went to a Covenent meeting. Some did not like what Anna Richardson said. A new boy but a torment. Visited the ship works, saw steam augers. Glad to return to my boarding place again.'
