Rosalia & Bertille washed, ironed, patched & baked cookies today. Leona, Robert, Floyd were up this morning. Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary came up this evening. They got a letter today from Henry Keorber to come to a basket picnic Sunday at Rittemeyer’s woods. Tonight there is a Public dance at Nick Schaefers barn. There was a man at our house this afternoon, by the name of Mr. Sparks. He sell the Wayne Feed but Papa wasn’t at home. He was out at Henry’s with a guy from Belleville that wanted to buy a mule or the mare. But he didn’t buy neither one. Uncle Fred and Papa went up to the creamery this evening to see if they could get some cinders. But they couldn’t have none right now, but maybe later on. Aunt Mary was saying Bertha Wolf could die anytime now. She got operated on for appendicitis and now she is awful bad sick. They phoned and left Mrs. Jatho at Hecker. I have noticed Edgar Herzog from New Athens and Miss Luetta Fanke of Lenzburg have their marriage license in the paper today. He is 19 years old and she is 18 years old. They go out playing music together. They play the accordions.
