In the afternoon I took my skates and going onto the ice at the foot of Grove Street I put on my skates and skated down as far as the Colts Freight Depot. Finding the wind trying to my eyes, I stayed but a short time. There were a great many persons on the ice. Several boys were pushing girls upon sleds. There were some ladies skating. My nephew skated down to Wetherfield Cove near the Prison and back. Wednesday, February 16th The paper contained an account of the arrest of Dr. Louis P.
