A good day. Had a shower a bout dark. Carrie was afraid that we would have a storm and come down here with all the little children. It did not rain long so Reese and Hazel and Carrie and Vera went home. Paul and Roy staid all night.

Ben and Josie and Henry and Mr Owen and Marvin went to Altavista to see a show to night. Josie and I washed a big washing this morning.

This evening Ben carried Henry Edna and I to White Falls to fish.

To night Ben and Josie and Henry and Owen and Marvin are all gone to Altavista to see a show. Hope they may enjoy it.

A rainy day. Ben and Owen fired tobacco all day. Josie had a hurting in her back and was not able to work this morning. Was some better off this evening and made some sweetmeats and pickle.

I got dinner and then went to see Carrie a while.

I am so sorry for Ben tonight. It is raining so hard and he is at the barn.

A good morning. Rain this evening.

Denia and I staid at Letchers until dinner then went to see John Craddocks sister. Mary Towler went with us. Found them well.

While we were there it rained. When we started home the creek was up so that we could not cross where we did when we went over there so we crossed on a fence and crossed two branches on poles and rails. None of us fell or got wet. We come by the grave yard and got to Letchers OK.

Cloudy today and some rain. Ben got up part of his pea hay and part got wet. We got dinner when we got breakfast thought we would strip tobacco. It was so dry that we could not handle it. Josie sewed some.

I dug some potatoes.

Reese and Henry helped me and we built a pig pen and got up the pigs and they got out.

Ben and Owen went a squirrel hunting. Killed four. Ben kept 2 and then would not skin them. So I did it.

Heard to day that Alma and Lonnie are sick. Had a letter from Mary Brumfield. They were well when she wrote. Hope that they may stay so.
