A colde windy day.

Marvin killed his hogs. Ben helped him. Mr Dews shucked corn. Owen helped him.

I went to Carries and staid a while. Frances Callans (col'd) helped Carrie to day. Josie staid at home with Franklin. She sewed some.

Heard to day that Willie Mayhew went to Danville for Steven Davis and they looked for him home last night and he had not come yet tonight. I feel uneasy a bout him. I do hope that nothing serious has happened to him. He is one of our best neighbors.
