A good day. Raining tonight.
All gone to bed but me. I soon will be if nothing happens.
8 40 oclock
Josie got dinner. I sewed some, finished two garments. Nearly all has colds. Edna has such a cough that I dont think she will sleep much to night. Jim & Ben and Josie are playing cards to night for pastime. It is raining hard now.
8 30 o clock
Have not heard from Marvins today.
9 30 oclock
A clear day and the wind did blow. Most every one is feeling bad. Jim & Ben staid at home all day and rambled a round the fields. I got the dinner except making the bread. We had chicken and cream pie.
Ben & Jim went to the Island. Jim went on to Chatham. Ben went to meet Josie. He phoned home that she had not come to Cedar Forest. He is down there somewhere now. Henry went to Marvins this evening. He come home & got in the wood for to night.
We fed the horses & cows & pigs and calves & chickens & dogs. Edna & Franklin has bad colds tonight and I am very sorry a bout it. Denia come to see me this evening. I was glad that she come but was sorry to see [her]go home in the rain.
I am so afraid that something bad has happened to Mrs Car or Josie or both.
