They were all up for church this morning. This afternoon we went to Millstadt to hear the singers. It was Saengerfest Picnic. We met Frank Dudenhoeffer, his wife & George, Peter Reheis & Jas. Reheis, Oscar Birkners, Adam Eckerts. From Millstadt we went to the Club House, there we had chicken supper. They had a tarpaulin laid to dance on. There were a lot of people there. When we came home Henry just came out from our house. But he came back again, he wanted to know where that club house was, but they went back home again. Last Sunday the Millstadt ball team played with Hecker here. The score was 19 to 2 in favor of Hecker. Rex Rapp made a home run. Today they are playing with a St. Louis team. I seen in the paper that Henry S. Braun threshed 1800 bus. of wheat & 1500 bus. of oats.
