Wednesday, December 31, 1919

A good day. Ben & Jim went hunting. A lot of the grand children come to night and a few others. Kate and Irvin walked down here. The children played until midnight. They all said that they had a good time. I did not have anything to do with the askin them.

I am glad that the Xmas is gone. Every day is preshious but the excuse for doing nothing is gone.

We have had good wood and have had good fires for which I want to be thankful. I have not bin sick a day so that I could not go a bout. I feel sad to think of this being the last time that I will write in this book.
