This has been a hot day, although there
has been a light breeze much of the time.
I went to meeting, we had a sermon from E.
Farquhar, & also a short one from Caroline
Miller. After lunch I walked up to the
Tellegraph Office, where Fred: Iddings is
"officiating" in the temporary absence of
Frank Leizear Jr: and will be there for
a day or two, until Leizear returns.
Fred came down & spent an hour with
us this afternoon. A thunder gust
came up towards evening, but most
of it passed around north & South of us.
we had some high wind & light rain
although it looked very threatning at
one time, it did not amount to much here.

Beautiful summer morning.

Kate Stabler & also at Jno Abel's and
at the store. Afternoon I walked up to

medical publication advertized by them.
It is still very hot, but a nice breeze from
the South makes it bearable.

the Surry over to "Eldon" & called at
"Homewood" on our return, but saw
no one there; they did not answer the
door bell, I suppose they were taking
an afternoon "nap". I washed the
Surry, besides taking off the "pole" &
putting on the shafts. We read: a
joint letter from all three of the
sons, in Va.
