A beautiful day. We all staid at home until noon. Then Ben & family and I went to Jim Powers. They had company both olde and young. Acie and Hessie Anderson, George Blair, Charles Harvey, and Miss Virginia Moses; Ben and his crowd and I; Mr Walter Car, & Mr Jo Hobson.

I have not seen any of Marvins folks today. I miss them most (much) as I would my folks at home.
