A good day. Cloudy in the morning but no rain and we need rain so bad. Jim stripped tobacco all day. Ben shelled some corn & went to the mill. He got his grain ground.

I done all of the feeding of chickens and cows & opossomes. Helped get dinner. Josie made some candy for the school entertainment. Alcie Callands washed for Josie today. She is a good hand. I went to Marvins a few minutes

Jim & Ben went to Willie Mayhews for a hog that Ben bought from Mayhew.

I hope he may have good luck with her. There was to be speaking at the school house tonight. Our folks did not go.
