We rose early, cabin cold, soon after day light got a cab and went to the McClure House, porter 25 cents, Cafe 65 cents. Got breakfast and dinner, sat in the reception room, & parlor, -- Snowy cold, disagreeable day. Could not go out into the city. Went to the Hempfield depot at three o’clock in the cab. Railroad not very good, slow progress, arrived at West Alexander 16 miles about sunset.
