A good morning. We all staid at home. Nellie & Evylin come this morning. Mr Tup Walker brought them. Kate Harvey & Carrie Smith and the little children come a little while. Jim & Ben went to the creek. Had to hurry back on account of a cloud. We have had the hardest rain I most ever saw. The branch is as high as I ever saw it. Washed the fence a way below the spring. Oh I am so sorry a bout the high water.
