A good day. Jim and John Ward cut corn. Ben has bin at Lees all day. The children went to school. Evylin washed a big washing for them. Nellie kept the baby. I got dinner. Lelia Ward come this morning and got a chicken. She said she wanted it for their dinner. Heard today that Evylin Hutcherson is sick. Jo Edmons is bad off yet from getting hurt. I hope that they may get well soon. Today is Mabels birth day. She is four years old. I am writing by the light of four little wax candles that I made for her. She is very well except a sore ear.
