    February 8th Sunday.

        Arose at 8 ¾. Take “grace” for that absence. Coz. Maria fixed my hair very nicely this morning. Read a very interesting work by M.I. McIntosh entitled, Violet or the “Crops and the “Crown”. Attended Chapel twice—Dr. Collin’s and Dougherty officiating. Went according to engagement to accompany Mallie to Church, but the gas works being somewhat deluged by the late. Thaw, no gas was in church. Mallie did not ask me ore express any regrets about not going. All O.K. Don’t understand her exactly—may have been an oversight, but I guess she wont see me any more. Wrote to Ellen and retired at 11 ½.
