A good day. Ben helped Mr Edmons kill hogs. Jim helped to grind sausag and carrie the lard to the spring then shucked some corn. This evening Jim & Ben helped to load the waggons for Marvin. They intend to move away tomorow. I hope they may have a good day. Josie and Nellie ground sausag and seasoned it and got dinner & supper. I staid at the wash house and dried up the lard. We made a good lot of lard. The children went to school. Oh how we all will miss Marvin and all of the family. I think it may be the best thing that he can do. Time will tell them that lives to see.
