A warm day. Snow and ice melted very fast. Ben went to Renan and to see Charles. Kate Harvey come a little while. The weather is so bad that I have to stay in most of the time. Ben made the fire in the stove this morning. I got breakfast. Josie got dinner. She had a bowl of soup and chicken. Baked tea cakes. We all did enjoy it so much. I washed dishes after dinner. Josie fed the calves and chickens. We had tea cakes and cocoa for supper.

A good day. The men folks planted tobacco this morning. I drawed plants until twelve.

Dr Owen and wife ask me to go fishing. Their car got so it would not work. They left it on the road. John Hutcherson let the Dr have his and we went to Moons Pond. Did not catch any fish to speak of. I thank them for takein me with them.

Josie got dinner. She made vegetable soup. I thought it was very good.

We heard to day that Mrs Johnson died this morning. I am sorry for the family.
