A cloudy day. Ben packed his tobacco down ready to load on the truck. Shucked some corn. Helped a man get his car out of the mud. Hitched Prince to the car and pulled it out. Went to meet Jim. Marvin went with him.

Josie and I went to Marvin. Edna, Franklin, and Mabel went. Henry went to Johnson Reynols. Heard to day that a childe was burnt to death at Clide Reynols's. No one know what will happen in a day. I feel glad when all is reasonable well and have enough of things to be comfortable. I wish I could be more thankful and more humble than I am.

Carrie comed my hair today.

Some rain today. We need it and more yet Carrie packed a nice lunch and Carrie and all the children and I started to go to Taylors Mill. It commenced to rain while we were at Gretna. We went on until we near the mill and it rained so hard that we come home. We eat dinner at home and spent the evening mending the childrens clothes and going to the snap patch. Carrie had to take little Julia. That was a job on her. I have wrote a note home to night and so much hope that they are well at home.
