Extreme cold

Thursday, February 25th., Vevey.

Fifteen degrees C. of cold this morning at 7 a.m., 13 degrees at 8.15. I went out yesterday afternoon. Strong north-east wind and very hard frost. I had my face wrapped up but after a mile I could not stand it any longer, and had to come home. It was a terrifying and very painful cold: the keenest I have been in.
Finished this morning last chapter but one of "Denry" or "The Card". So busy with this, and advance articles for New Age, that no time or disposition for a journal.
