A good day. Ben worked on his car most of the day. I ironed some & got a snack for dinner. Josie was sick this morning.

Just at night to day Lizzie Bennett and Faber and Ola Jefferson come. They had bin to a picknick at Whittles. They brought enough things already cooked for our supper and even some of the things was for Carrie.

I made my supper of what they brought and did enjoy it. Ben amd Faber went where they some one was hunting but did not stay long. I am so glad to hear that Brother Letcher is improving some. Hope he may get well a gain. I am glad that Lizzie and the children come.

A good day. Jim and Ben worked on a spring box at the Owen spring half of the day. Ben went to Mrs Cars place to help put on a roof. Come home & him and three of the children has gone to the school house to a picture show. Josie ironed all the evening.

Reese Smith carried me & Paul and Roy to White Falls. I caught several fish there. Was a crowd of people at Whitefalls on a picknic. I would guess there was as many as 40 people.

There is a negro assosiation going on at Glendland. We met a lot going home. We come by Kates. Grace B was there.
