A cloudy morning.

Before we finished eating breakfast Mr Layne come to get his calf. I got him in the stable and Ben tied him but they could not carry him home he was so stubborn. Ben and Owen lost about two hours time then they went to work.

Ben put a yoke in the cow this morning. Henry and I worked on the fence nearly all the morning. The calves was in the pasture to night. Ben worked on his pigs to day. Doris Brumfield and C Reynolds come a while this evening. Josie planted some hyacinths bulbs to day.

Well I went to sleep and made a mark.
