A clear colde day. The children went to school.

Jim and Ben was at Gretna. They staid all night at Chatham with Jims family. Come to Gretna and got breakfast and solde their tobacco & come home. They got home a bout dark.

Solde reasonably well I think.

Josie & I cut rags some today. Josie went to Marvins a little while this evening. Mabel was good to day for her to be.

Heard today that Mrs Jack Kellie was buried Saturday. I guess she will be very much missed. I found Henrys knife and 5 cts in the shucks. I have not tolde him yet.

Ben gave me a pair of overshoes to night.
