Monday Feb. 13. 1865

One of the coldest mornings we have had this winter our thermometer was 4o above zero but in exposed situations the mercury was at zero.  Martha came back but Mrs. B. C. Bailey sent for her to go to her house to do some sewing.      Fresh pork brings 18 cents per pound -- eggs have been 40 cents a dozen -- and butter as high as 50 cents, I don’t know how poor people live.
