A good day. We all staid at home until after twelve. Jim fired on his tobacco all day. This evening I went to Johnson Reynols. They had a house full of company. All their people. Posie & family, Clack & family and Jim Thomson & family and I. I think they enjoyed having them. They made ice cream and had cake. Rubin brought me home on Jim Thomsons car.

Ben & family went to see Mag & children. I was glad that they went. I want to go soon to see them all.

We had a good rain last night.

Charles & wife come to see Kate to day.
