A good day. Ben & Jim shucked some corn this morning & hauled some stalks this evening.

Ben carried Henry & Edna and I the Moons Mill. We fished some. Did not catch any thing that was worth having.

Josie got dinner. She baked light bread. Boiled over some molasses.

Jim & Ben & Franklin come after us. Reuben & Paul come a few minutes. Reubin drove up the cows for me. He brought me his picture. I was glad to see the boys.

Ren Worsham & 4 of the children was at Strait Stone. He would of brought us part the way home if Ben had not come as soon as he did.

A beautiful warm morning. I would of given either of the boys five dollars to have taken me where I could of fished some but did not say a word about it. I was afraid they would deny me & belitle me for being so foolish and it hurts so bad to be denied. In the place of fishing I got dinner and helped to clean the yard and draped and covered two rows of onions and went to Carries a few minutes.

Jim & Ben finished diggin Irish potatoes and put them in kiln in the garden. Fixed the land to plant onions.

Then hauled some stalks to feed the cows. To night Ben & Josie went to Renan. I stayed with the children. Josie got a package from the island to day. She gave me a nice sweater. I am glad of it. I am so near a sleep that I cant hardely write.
