A good day. Ben and Jim shucked some corn and loaded Jims tobacco on John Hutcherson truck. John & Jim started to Danville. I hope they got there ok. This evening Ben & Marvin went to the school house and helped to put a pump in the well that has bin bored there. They staid late. The children come home with them. Josie had supper ready when they got home. I cut peices and sewed on my quilt most of the day. Hope to finish the squares tomorrow if I work on it. I wanted to go to Marvins this evening but would not leave Josie Mabel.
