Today is Rosalia’s birthday, she is 19 years old. Bertille baked 3 birthday cakes this morning. Papa went over to Freeburg this morning & got some tiling for a well. We are having chicken soup for dinner. Papa went out in the Blackjacks to see a man by the name of Hover this afternoon. This evening Uncle Fred, Aunt Mary, Christ Buehler’s family & Henry & family were all here celebrating Rosalia’s birthday, music was played & watermelons, cakes, doughnuts, lemonade were the refreshments. There was a man here this afternoon trying to sell watermelon, he came from Sparta. But we didn’t buy any because we already had two.
