A good day but it is snowing to night. Ben and Tom and Edmons helped Ben cut a set of barn logs to day. They both eat dinner with Ben. We were glad to have them here to night. Ben has gone to Jim Powers to a dance. Josie was sick this morning but is feeling some better tonight.

I got most of the dinner. I sewed some this evening and then went to Marvins. Josie sewed on her quilt this evening. Lee Brumfield passed here and stopped a while. He was hauling a load of wood for the teachers. They are going to try and keep house at Kate Harveys. I am sorry for the girls.
