A clear day.

Ben & Jim worked on Owens house. Josie got dinner and straitened up the cook room. Washed & filled up the lamps and made some candy.

I went to see Mollie this evening they were all well up there. They had heard that Clifton was sick. I hope that he may be well soon.

Josie started to Danville while I was there.

Marvin pulled down his olde barn today. Ben & Josie was asked to a dance tonight. They did not go.

Jim and Ben & Josie are playing cards tonight. I think they had better go to bed.

Ben started the engine today. We were all glad that he got it started. We used the lamps last night and made out fine.
