Papa went up town and got Vic. Eichenseer to put a new valve in the tank in the basement so now it works again. Then Papa took him back again. Rosalia & Papa went out to Henry’s to get a load of wheat. After dinner he took the wheat down to Red Bud, then it went out to B. W. Weld’s sale 3 miles south of Waterloo on the hard road, his son was doing the farming & he is a plumber. Harry Kammler is having a dance tonight. One of our Rhode Island Reds laid one egg today. Papa bought some chicken coops at the sale. There sure was a crowd in Hecker at the dance the streets were all lined up with cars.
