Josie made sand witches and carried up there. Hellen and Virginia has bin here all day. Elsie and Bulah come in here. Elsie gave me some candy and Bulah gave oranges. Virginia gave me a box of candy.

I hope they may enjoy the dance. I had rather they had not had it but nothing else would not do. I am a fraid that there is so many there that they cant have a good time. I am so sleepy that I hardly can write.

A very rainy day.

Ben worked on Owens house all day. Owen went to Gretna.

Josie baked some cakes. I ironed most of the day. The children tried them selves to see how tormenting they could be.

Reese Smith come to day and brough me a box. I have not looked in it yet. Guess it has candy in it.

I wish I knowed how all of the children were feeling to night. There is so much sickness that I am all ways uneasy and looking for some one to get sick.
