A good day.
Josie got dinner & ironed. I went with Mr Willie Mayhew & wife to Long Island. We all fished some. We did not catch any thing. I am so thankful that they would be troubled with me. I eat dinner with them. The whole trip did not cost me a penny.
A good day. Jim went to Gretna with tobacco. Solde well for what it was. Marvin went to Gretna today with tobacco. Did not sell so well. Josie worked all day fixin for company. She cooked a posome for supper.
I went to see Earl Bennett & Lizzie Anderson married. I think they had a nice wedding. Gorden & Lizzie and Frances come by here for me & brought me home. I certainly did thank them for the rememberance.
A cloudy day. The boys finished sawing wood by twelve oclock. Cleaned out the stables this evening. Boy Barbers wife was buried this evening. No one from here did not go to the burial. Nellie got dinner. Then sewed on her quilt. I cut up the stair way carpet and will make rugs of it. Lelia sent the clothes home by John. They were done very good. The children went to school.
