Cloudy all day. Rain tonight. The boys killed two hogs and
John Ward one. Mr. Booker helped them. The children went to school.

Hattie Gilbert washed here some of the the clothes ?? so that we could take them in. Most of the are hanging on the line taking the rain.
I got a letter from Mrs. Carr saying that Max had got hurt and wanted he to come to him. I guess she is out there now. I heard from some of the sick today. They were getting on very well. Jack Harvey has gone home. He did not come to see us. I want to see Virginia but can't get there.
