A rainy morning. I was at Kate Harveys this morning. Kate & I went to Mag Brumfields and spent the day. We had a pleasant day. Mag had a nice dinner. Miss Jessie Kellie was there. The children went to school. I am at home to night and am glad I am.

I may get a new pen point before I try to write again.
