Awaken by Mrs. Heacock coming over to start our fires at 10:30. Rather tired. Marcella and Ralph walk. Nell–Lewis and I start–but Nell finds it to cold so stops at her father's. Lewis and I continue. Come back and read "Chinytown Ballads." Go to bed early. 45° below.

Interesting reading - as I read the first poem, I found myself taking on a rap cadence–very weird!
