A clear hot day. The men folks helped Marvin save primings this evening. Josie and I handed leaves and Josie tied some.

Josie got dinner. We pealed the peaches that Mollie give us. Had peaches and cream for dinner and snaps and corn all cooked good and I did enjoy my dinner.

Talked with Denia Blair to night over the phone. She said that Cordie was going to Richmond tomorrow. I certainly do hope she may have a good time and [be] benifited by going.
