P.M. -To Walden and Fair Haven.
The only bare ground is the railroad track, where the snow was thin. The crust still bears, and I left the railroad at Androrneda Ponds and went through on crust to Fair Raven. Was surprised to see some little minnows only an inch long in an open place in Well Meadow Brook. As I stood there, saw that they had just felled my bee tree, the hemlock. The chopper even then stood at its foot. I went over and saw him cut into the cavity at my direction. He broke a piece out of his axe as big as my nail against a hemlock knot in the meanwhile. There was no comb within.  They have just been cutting wood at Bittern Cliff. The sweet syrup is out on the ends of the hickory logs there.
