Bertille went to church this morning. Feast of ‘Corpus Christie.’ Today is Odillo Eichenseer’s birthday. He is 18 years old. He is going to celebrate tomorrow night in Kammler’s Hall. Papa is digging post holes this morning. He is going to put up a straw shed for the horses. They have a big piece in the paper of Fr. Schlarman becoming Bishop. Today he has a big time for all the children. Bertille took 2 1/2 dozen eggs off. Eggs are .19¢ a dozen. Fr. Grootens wanted Papa to come and help on the new school today, but I told him he was too busy. He had to set posts for a straw shed. So then he called for Adam Brand but I don’t think he answered. Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary were there this evening. Uncle Fred helped Papa put the posts on. Papa went up town this evening. Albert Griffin a student at the University of Illinois graduated and can be anything he wants to in the case of law or anything else. Irene Reheis also graduated from Belleville High School.
