A good day. Ben & Jim stripped tobacco most of the day. This evening Ben went to the island after roofing. I went with him. We did not stay long. We come home and eat supper and all except Jim went to the school house to a Halowene party. They solde ice cream and candy. There was a big crowd and I think they nearly all had a good time.

There was 4 of my chiildren and a lot of my grand children & great grand children.

I went to sleep and let the ink get on my book.
