May 21st Tuesday

A big frost last night being the sixth one since this cold weather. Thermometer this morning & by papers this cold spell has extended over a large territory both east & west & much damage is done thereby in various places. There was an excursion over the Nickle Plate road for different points west to day but I felt as though my visit was hardly made out. This afternoon took a ride around Medina & then to Mr. Prudden’s & took tea. Carrie, Belle, Chauncey & I had a very pleasant visit. Sara Prudden is in quite poor health. Had to give up school teaching about Christmas. Still very cold for May.
