I went to Carries a little while to night. Louise Hutcherson is here. They are playing cards. We heard today that Mr Allen is very bad off. To night Ben spoke in a way that hurt me. I give them nearly all of my time & strength and they don't respect me.

A rainy day. Jim went from here this morning. He was going to see his people at Lynchburg. I have felt all day like something serious was the matter. I can't tell why. Jim went with the Edmons boys to Gretna. Ben's car is so out of fix that it won't go like he would like. Floid Reynols was here a few minute to day. He said that Julia Fergeson's baby was very sick. Reubin and his mother was going to Danville this evening to see the baby. I hope it is better by now. I got a nice box of candy from Clifton and Jane today. I have got more nice presents and cards this Xmas than I ever did be fore at Xmas. Ben is at work on a picture frame to night.
