But our fire went out and for lack of coke I could not kindle it. It got warm and pleasant in the sun later so I turned the boys out doors to play and got along very nicely myself.

(Sounds like they had another cool night, after two previous nights of frost. Hopefully, they didn't need any heat after this, until they got a load of coke delivered in the fall. It must have been some chore to keep the furnace going all through the winter, making sure that a fire was going all of the time. And how did they regulate how much heat they got?)

    Can you imagine? Sick kids, no heat. I'm depressed reading this.
