January 8, 1919 Wednesday

'Teddy' buried. Stop work 5 minutes in house. Fine president salute of guns at forts. TOO MUCH HUMIDITY 100% for DAYS AND COLD. Up at 3:45 not much pep. Cold no better. Sore tonsils & chest first like it. Received insurance policy from government, took from October 5 to get here. Pays 57.50 per month for disability. Enjoyed reading and writing only.
