A good morning. Rain this evening.
While we were there it rained. When we started home the creek was up so that we could not cross where we did when we went over there so we crossed on a fence and crossed two branches on poles and rails. None of us fell or got wet. We come by the grave yard and got to Letchers OK.
A cloudy day and a little rain here. Ben just got in from Altavista. Says that it rained hard there. He went for a load of lumber. The rest of us stripped tobacco all day. We finished a curing for Mr Owen and commenced one for Paul.

A cloudy day and rain all the evening. Ben and Jim worked on the branch until it rained so they had to quit or get wet. Mr Owen plowed some this morning and went to the mill this evening. Guess he got wet.

A cloudy day and some rain. Julia and the baby. Mrs Farmer and Mollie and I went to the citty park. It rained so that Julia & the baby staid under a shelter. The rest of us looked a round. There was a lot to look at. Fowls & flowers & animals. We got back to Howards and eat supper. John & Henry Brumfield come. Then we went to a picture show. While we were waiting for a car the fire bell rang. We went to see them throw water with their pump It is all a show for them that dont live in town. I certainly do wish that Ben & Josie & Carrie could be there and hear & see for a while. Julias baby cried a heap. I am a fraid it is not well.
This is wrote Thursday evening. I for got to write last night. Having such a big time.
I was at Carries a few minutes this evening.
Jim bought some butter from Sallie Blair. He would insist on going home so Ben carried him to Long Island. When Ben got to the creek at Cedar Forest it was up so that he would not cross with the buggy. He put his horse up at Mr Johnsons and come over on a boat and walked home. He brough some mail for several people. The carrier did not make his round on account of high water. I am very glad that things are not worse than they are.
Wren Worsham carried me & Henry and Isla Blair to Worshams pond to fish. I caught 4 small carp. I was glad to get them. We got back as far as George Blairs before it rained. George Jr brought us home. I am glad that they are so good to me. I eat dinner with Wren & Isla at a good spring on the hill.
I milk and churn.
