A good day. We all stayed at home except the children. They went to school. Marvin helped Mr. Pickenel cut tobacco and moved some tobacco. Reese carried me to Gretna this morning before he went to school. I bought some gingham. Carrie made me three aprons and a pettie coat. I am proud of them. Some of the children have very bad colds. I helped Carrie what I could today. Gathered some butter beans and shelled them.
