A cloudy day. Rain tonight. Ben finished stripping tobacco. Mr Booker helped them strip. Marvin Smith and Mr Shelton come here today. Shelton come to look at cow. Did not like her. Bought one from Kate Harvey. I am glad that he did. I think it is good for her. I was very much disapointed that they would not stay for dinner. Josie & I had fixed for them as good as we could under the circum stances. Henry went toschool. Josie & I sewed on quilts this evening. The weather is awful bad so that we have to sit by the fire most of the time.
Josie is very bad off.
Well I have commenced in my new book and hope I may live to finis[h] it.

A very colde day. Ben and Jim finished stripping tobacco today. The children went to school. Josie has bin very bad off all day. Ella is here with her yet. Nellie and I got a snack to eat. Nellie sewed all the time she could get from her other work. Letia Ward brought our clothes home ironed nice. That is a help. No one has come today. It has bin so colde that no one would go out more than they were oblidged to. Ben went to Dr. Owens ? to night for tablets ? The last that Josie will ever need I think.
