Colde and cloudy.

Ben went to Gretna with a load of tobacco for Paul and him self and a little for Irvin Harvey. It all sold reasonably well. Josie sewed. I got a snack for dinner.

This evening I mended my sweater. Miss Janie and Mrs Gravley come in a few minutes on their way from school. Mr Layne come this morning to try to get his calf home. He could not manage him and he is here yet. Ben got home from Gretna about sundown.
