A good day. Ben and Owen hauled wood this morning and sawed it this evening.

Josie mended her fire place this morning and got dinner. She cooked salsify and parsnips the [first] that we have had this season.

I went to Marvins this evening. I worked some button holes in the childrens clothes. Tonight I have ripped up an old skirt of Carries that Miss Alice Hubbard made before Carrie was married.

She is thinking of making some pants for Roy.
