A good day. Ben & Henry suckered tobacco this morning.

This evening Ben carried Henry & Edna and Franklin and I to White Falls. I brought home 21 fish. They were all small. We cooked them for supper. Josie staid at home with Mabel. She made Edna a gown. Edna is very glad of it.

No rain yet. We need it so bad.

I have not seen Carrie today. I miss her if I dont see her often. I guess I will get use to not seeing her.
