A rainy morning. Ben started the engine. We have
elect tonight. The first time in a long time. Jim
shut up the chickens tonight. He wants to sell some of
them soon. Ben went to Renan this evening. Kate is getting on well so they say. There is a lot of sickness
yet. I got a letter from Elsie East today.
Mr. Thomson sent here for some butter today. They are all
sick except for one or two. Nellie and Jim ground the
sausage and made it . I was at the wash house. [??iled]
up the lard and cleaned the heads and feet. It was a
nasty mean job. The lard is so full of water. It can't be
any wetter. I got a valentine today.
