Blacksmithing again, worked all day on our express wagon. Spent a pleasant evening in the house. Another year begun. I hope and pray that I may be prospered as well the year to some as I have the year that has passed. Cushman payed me up to the first of Jan. I also payed for my board to the first of Jan. Charley Russel plowed today rather a singular time of the year for ploughing.
