A good day. Jim and Ben finished shucking corn. I got dinner. Josie ironed some. She has bin so troubled all day that she could not work much. Poor little Henry went to Gretna last night though he would go to Richmond but he did not get off. His father brought him home. We were all so glad to have him home again. I do hope he wont try it a gain soon.

Edna went to school. Miss Carter let her go on the buggy with her. Carrie and the children come a little while late this evening.
