A cloudy day and some rain. Julia and the baby. Mrs Farmer and Mollie and I went to the citty park. It rained so that Julia & the baby staid under a shelter. The rest of us looked a round. There was a lot to look at. Fowls & flowers & animals. We got back to Howards and eat supper. John & Henry Brumfield come. Then we went to a picture show. While we were waiting for a car the fire bell rang. We went to see them throw water with their pump It is all a show for them that dont live in town.

A good day. Mrs Farme & Mollie Reynolds and come from Howard Fergersons at Portsmoth this morning.

Julia Fergerson went with us to the depot. Our fare a peice was $5 84 cts. We had a good trip up to Long Island. Julia gave us a nice lunch to take with us and Mr Farmer bough some fruit so we had plenty to eat and that was good. Bruce Reynolds met us at the depot and brought us home. I do thank them for carrieing and bringin me home. I found them all well.

Carrie and her little ones was here. I was glad to see them all. I have felt troubled ever since I got home a bout Mrs Johnson and Mrs Hutcherson being so sick. I want to go and see Mrs Hutcherson soon.

I am so glad I am at home a gain.
