A good day. Jim & Ben rambled a round all day. Josie got dinner. I killed a chicken & dressed it ready to cook.

I went to see Kate & Mag. I eat dinner with Kate. She was at home by her self. This evening Dr & Pearl Wiggin and Charles & Irvin Harvey come to Kates. We were at Mags. I was glad to see the children.

I walked all the way home and nearly all the way there. Claude Edmons carried me on their car from our barn to the fork of the road at Johnson Reynolds barn. I was mighty glad of that much help.

Virginia Harvey went back to school to day.
