A beautiful day for January. We was all at home for dinner. Henry traded his wheel for type writer. He is carried a way with it. Ben and Josie went to Strait Stone late this evening. While they were gone Charles Harvey and Miss Virginia Moses come. They wanted the records for the phonogarapth. They was on their way to Lee Brumfield. Guess they will dance there tonight.

I ironed some today.

I thought this morning we would have a rainy day. It was partly cloudy and a plain rain bow. It rained a little and cleared off.

Ben or Josie one are typewriteing now.
