A good day. The men hauled in the pea hay this mornin and hauled manure this evening. Commenced to use the spreader this evening. Josie helped to get dinner to day and has got the dinner for ten days she says. I went to Mr Owens and dressed the baby.

While we were eating dinner Marvin called me and ask if I wanted to go fishing. Of course I said I wanted to go so he carried me to Cedar Forest. I did not catch many fish.

I was glad of the trip.
