Cold & snowing in morning, sunshine afternoon. Papa hauled 3 loads wood down, got the cedar tree & hauling manure. Rose baked molasses cookies. We cleaned the front room. Went out to Uncle Freds, gave them some cheese & milk. There is an awful big piece in the paper, that Uncle Fred is accessed more than all Belleville, & than 9 townships, just everything is in, what he was accessed for, sure is the limit; the Belleville people aren’t paying taxes; even some of the beautiful homes pictured in the paper were there is no taxes being paid on.
