A good day. Jim plowed and Ben went to the saw mill twice. Carried two logs & brought back lumber.

Josie washed a big washing. Kate Harvey come and spent the day. I was glad to see her. A picture agent come here to day. Agents is plentyful now.

I walked with Kate as far as Marvins. Marvin was stripping tobacco.

Tonight Edna broke a chamber vessel and let Mabel fall off the bed then had a good cry and went to sleep.

Jim and Ben helped Marvin tie tobacco tonight. I carried Carries quilt home this evening.

A beautiful day. Ben hauled some lightwood this morning. This evening he went to Strait Stone and brought Mr George Worsham up to the school house and carried him back. They got the pump to work so they can get water at the school house. The picture agent come this evening and brought Josies pictures. Carrie Smith had a lot of company this evening. Kate Harvey & Mag Brumfield, Mollie Reynolds and Josie and Mabel. Otho Blair and Sallie and I went fishing. Did not catch many fish but had a pleasant evening. I was so glad that they carried me. Marvin has his waggon loaded to got to Gretna. I fear it will rain by morning. Jim has not come home yet.
