Colder and rainy

Got a letter from Bess that Gilbert’s cousin, Dora Francis was dead, so he went in the evening after fixing the crack in the furnace and building a fire. The boys were so good to work today. Cleaned out the basement, the furnace and the registers. It was too cold and rainy to go out but they didn’t fuss about it a bit. Dale is getting interested in wood working and is going to buy himself tools to work with. Is making himself a tool box.

(This is the first mention of Dora Francis. As far as I know, Grandma never mentioned her in the family history. I don't know if Francis was a middle or last name.)

    A crack in the furnace? That sounds dangerous!
