William M. Lile -- 9 november 1882
Had a postal card from brother John. The weather cool enough for fires—sprinkling, or threatening rain all day. Bought suit of clothes @ $20.00. It pinches me like the mischief to have to spend money especially when not absolutely necessary. I have only one suit besides that I bought today, and it is too thin for winter so I reasoned that as I was compelled to have a winter suit I had just as well get it now, and save the other for Spring, even if it should look a little worn.
