A good morning. Rain this evening.

Denia and I staid at Letchers until dinner then went to see John Craddocks sister. Mary Towler went with us. Found them well.

While we were there it rained. When we started home the creek was up so that we could not cross where we did when we went over there so we crossed on a fence and crossed two branches on poles and rails. None of us fell or got wet. We come by the grave yard and got to Letchers OK.
