A good day. Ben and
Tom and Chesley Edmons and
Owen sawed barn logs.

I went to see Charles
. I eat dinner
with Kate Harvey. Josie
staid at home and fixed for
company to night. Effie
and Hellen Brumfield and
Lillian Peak come here
from school. Tom and
Chesley Edmons come they
are playing cards.

To night there is a
light in the north. I wrote
on the wrong page a few
nights ago. Mrs Kellie
was at Renan. She said
that Otie Kellie was gone to
get him a new car.

Henry and Edna is in
the parlor to night.
