Sunday January 16, 1921

A clear day. Snow on the ground yet. We all was here at dinner. Jim went to Marvins this morning. Ben went to Owens late this evening. Owens baby is sick. Josie and I got dinner. We did not get any supper. I think now I will be so glad when I can go a round and not be colde. Mabel has woke up. She is one of the worst babys that I have ever seen.

I promised Ben 50 cts to carry the calf from the stable to the shop.
