A good day.

We got up this morning at
two oclock. The men folks
fed. Josie and I got breakfast
and they eat and got
off to Gretna with two
loads of tobacco. There was
so much tobacco at Gretna
they could not sell.

They got home nine oclock
at night. Josie got dinner
then went to Marvins and
stayed with Carries children
while Marvin and Carrie went
to Altavista. Carrie had some
work done on her teeth.

I picked some dried beans.
To night Josie and I shelled
two buckets full. Before they
were shelled Kate Harvey
come a few minutes. She wanted
to see Ben.

9 30 oclock

This is astonishing -- Gretna is less than 15 miles from the farm in Renan, and they're getting up at 2am to go!
