“Pleasant and very good sleighing. Mother returned from Bridgewater Ella Forbes brought her home. Lizzie has gone a sleighride with David Padelford. Evening. A lovely evening the moon is shining brightly and the ringing of the sleighbells seem to tell us that they appreciate its beauty.
Mrs Alfred B___ (illegible) has a daughter.” – Hattie E.F. D.
