A good day.
Ben and family staid at home to day. Mrs Carr is here with them. She had the head ache all day. I went with Posie and Nannie Kate to see Alice and Jim Thompson to day. I think they are so well fixed for new beginners. That has bin a grand old place and is good yet.
Hope they will soon be well.
A very colde day. Partly cloudy. Jim & Ben hauled in some feed then stripped tobacco for Mr Owen. Tonight they went to Marvins to help tye tobacco. Josie ironed some this morning. We both had a hand in getting dinner. We cooked cabbage & beans and made a crum pudding. I have set by the fire all that I well could. The children went to school. Heard today that Dorothy Worsham has scarlet fever. Mrs Edmons is very sick. Her daughter Mrs Hutcherson went to stay with her. I hope they all will soon be well.
