A cloudy day. No rain.

Ben went to Cedar Forest this morning to meet Josie. She staid at Altavista last night on her way from W Va. I think she had a good time and was glad to get home. The children was so glad to see her and all the rest of us was glad. There has not bin much traveling as the roads is so bad.

I went to Marvins a few minutes this evening. Carrie was complaining of the head ache. Hope she will be well soon.
