A beautiful day. Ben and Josie got up at three oclock in the morning and dressed and started for Charlottesville. They got to Gretna in time to take the train. Jim staid all night at Chatham and come to Gretna and solde a load of tobacco. He got back home a bout dark. He was very well pleased with what his tobacco brought. Henry went to school. The rest of the children done as well as could be expected. Franklin was sick the most of the day. Mabel staid up tonight until after nine oclock.
They are all abed now and a sleep but Edna.
Josie went to Marvins this evening. She carrie[d] Franklin and Mabel. Mollie Reynols was there a while. I would of like to see them all. I would be glad to see all of the children. I may never see them all any more.
A cloudy day. Ben packed his tobacco down ready to load on the truck. Shucked some corn. Helped a man get his car out of the mud. Hitched Prince to the car and pulled it out. Went to meet Jim. Marvin went with him.
Josie and I went to Marvin. Edna, Franklin, and Mabel went. Henry went to Johnson Reynols. Heard to day that a childe was burnt to death at Clide Reynols's. No one know what will happen in a day. I feel glad when all is reasonable well and have enough of things to be comfortable. I wish I could be more thankful and more humble than I am.
Carrie comed my hair today.
A beautiful day. Jim and Marvin went to Gretna. Marvin carried his cow to Mr Scrugs and solde him the calf. He had started to ship the calf. Jim carried a box of meat to send to Chatham for his folks.
