A very early spring. The fruit trees are done blossoming and are out in full leaf. We have been using lettuce from our garden for some time — The potatoes, onions, beets, and peas are growing nicely. I have more than a thousand tulips in blossom now. The Reeves Spirea is also out in bloom and is very beautiful. Mrs. Cutler and Sarah at Mr. Burgess’s — Maggie Voris got home from Cincinnati to day — Major Dawes here to spend the night.
