I went to Marvins a few minutes. Their cow is sick. I wrote to Evylin Brumfield today.

A good day.

We are having some rain to night and thunder. I do hope that we wont have a storm. I know that God is able to cause it not to be so bad. The men helped Marvin with his primings all day and Josie and I helped this evening. Edna and Franklin staid at Carries all the evening.

Henry and Cordie Blair started to Richmond this morning. I do hope that they had a good trip. Josie got a letter from Mary Brumfield saying that she would not come here until September. We look for Thelma and Julia tomorrow hope that they may come.

Josie and I ironed this morning.
