A good day. Ben and Henry

Booker plant tobacco.
Watered and planted.
I have bin very
busy to day. I killed
and fried two chickens
for dinner. It is a hard
time to get any thing but
meat and bread.

I certainly was glad
thay they come. Lizzie
has the tooth ache.
Lizzie brought Denia
some flower [slips?].
