A good day. Cloudy this morning but no rain. Ben & Henry helped Marvin cut tobacco. Jim fired his all day and part of tonight. Josie gathered two baskets of tomatoes this morning and Jim brought them to the house. I helped peel them. Josie put up 24 quarts.

I went to Marvins this evening. Norman Booker sowed him a turnip patch in the garden this evening. I cant get use to the idie that Booker is going to come there. I most shurely hate to think that Marvin & Carrie is going to leave.
