A good day. Jim & Ben worked on their tobacco most of the day. They helped Marvin clear out his well this evening.

Jose ironed this morning. Marvin let Reese carrie me to White Falls. Paul & Roy went. They bathed in the river and had a good time. I caught 20 little fish. When I got home Lizzie was there. She had Ola's little boy with her. I am glad she come. I have slept most of the time to night but I could not help it. I had bin on my feet all day nearly.

Reese brought me home. Carrie & the children come with me. I thank them.
