A cloudy day. Ben & Marvin cut feed at Marvins & at home. Marvin eat dinner with Ben. I went to Marvins and spent the day. Kate Harvey was there two. Carrie had a nice dinner. I went with Kate home to spend the night. Virginia & Irvin went to school. Irvin got a helmet that they called a German helmet. Charles Harvey sent it to him. Heard to day that Mrs. Pleas Worsham is dead. It is with a sad heart that I write for the last time in my little book.
