A good day. Ben & Josie worked on the cook room walls all the evening.

Josie and Fannie Power ironed all the morning. This evening Marvin let Reese take Henry & Hugh Brumfield and I to Cedar Forest. We fished. Did not catch anything much. We had some trouble when we got to Strait Stone. We found that we had left Hughs shoes so we went back and got them. I was glad to get them. Mr Charles Anderson helped Reese with the car. I did thank him so much. John B is here tonight. I am always glad for him to come. Fannie P and George Blair went to Gretna this evening to see a ball game. I have finished the quilt that I peiced for Alma Bennett.
