A beautiful day. Ben fixed up the wood saw and with Henrys help sawed some wood.

This evening Ben & family went to Jim Powers. They carried Mrs Car home. I went to Marvin Smiths. Reese Smith carried me to White Falls. Paul & Roy went with us. I fished and caught several fish. We stopped at Renan. There was several men there. Lee Brumfield was there. Kate Hubbard & Virginia Harvey and Little Clack was there. I am always glad to see any of the grand children. Martha Miller (col) tied tobacco for Marvin so that Reese could go with me fishing. I know I am a bother some times but it wont last long.

A good day. Ben carried Edna to Dr Owens and got the stiches taken out of her lip. I do hope she will not have any more trouble of that sort. Jim went to Mr Kellies then they stripped tobacco. They are at Marvins helping tie tobacco to night. I ironed some this morning. Josie got dinner.

This evening Josie went to Mr Woddings to see Miss Willie Woding. She was not at home. Mrs Kent was and she had a good visit. Franklin & Mabel and I went to see Carrie. Martha Miller went from there this evening. I know Carrie will miss her so much.
