A good day. The men folks worked on their corn land on the branch this evening. Ben carried Mrs Moris of Altavista to Long Island. He was two late. Her train had gone. She went to Mr Bill Owens to stay all night.

Josie got dinner. This evening Kate Harvey & Carrie Smith come a little while. While they were here the calves got in the garden. I was mad and I am a fraid I made some of the rest of them mad. I am very sorry that I got mad. It is two late now.

Marvin was sick this evening. I do hope he is better by now.

I got a check for my little calf to day. It did not amount to much. I am glad of that if it is little.
