Ben went to Chatham. John & Edwin and Christenia went and Kate Harvey. John gave them all dinner at the hotel. Kate & Ben was in the rain comeing home. Josie ironed some. We both got dinner. I caned five cans of tomatoes.

Edna and Franklin went to George Blairs. Josie got uneasy a bout them, a fraid they would be in a hard cloud but they got home before it rained.
