A good day. Ben was at Renan all day judge of electon. Jim went and voted. Irvin come for me. I went and voted. Then went to see Kate. She is very feeble yet. I hope she may get well. I met Mr. [Duepney?] for the first time. He is a nice looking man. Nellie got dinner for the crowd that was here. 21 of us. Edna begged Nellie to make batter bread for supper. It was very nice. Ben got home for supper. [Clement?] was ahead at Renan.

A cloudy morning and some rain. No rain this evening. Ben and Jim went to Renan this morning. This evening they cut and mauled. Ben got hurt. The wedge hit him in the face and cut his lip and a gash in his face. He went to the Dr. and had it fixed up. I hope it will not get bad. Nellie and I got dinner. I churned and printed the butter. Nellie sewed some. I cut pieces for Kate to put together. I went to Norman Bookers a while this evening. Mrs Booker gave me some sweet potatoes as nice as I ever saw. I am so glad of them.

Denia and Cordie Blair come to see us. Carrie and three of her children come. We let Edna go home with them. I was glad to see all of them. Wish they could come often. Kate brought me some snaps. Jim has some fine mellons now. Mabel has a bad colde. Hope she may get well soon. I have finished stringing snaps. 10 oclock at night.
