Papa isn’t feeling well this morning.  Bertille got the mail.  In the Waterloo Paper it states that Mr. & Mrs. Matt Crowe have a twin boy & girl at St. Mary’s Hospital in E. St. Louis.  They now have seven children 4 boys & 3 girls.  Rosalia & Bertille went up in the woods this afternoon & got a load.  But we had to put chains on & then take them off again.  We stopped at Henry’s first.  This evening is bank meeting at the new school.  Henry & family & Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary came up.  The men folks went to the meeting they said there was an awful crowd there.  Fr. Grootens was the main speaker & H. M. Hill made a few remarks that Mr. Burkhardt said that he thought everybody would be paid out in full if they gave him time, about a year or so.  We played 4 handed pinochle.  Bertille & Leona, & Rosalia & Aunt Mary, we each won one game.  Then Elsie & Alfred Eckert came & wanted to sell seeds.  Aunt Mary bought a package of seed corn.  They all left about 10:30.

Henry started plowing up here today.  Leona came up too and the kids, they were all here for dinner.  We washed this morning.  Rosalia & Bertille went to the Euchre in Kammler’s Hall this evening, but didn’t win anything.  Rosalia had 6 points & Bertille 7, but the 8′s didn’t all get prizes, there wasn’t enough.  Aunt Mary got a sauce pan she had 10 points.
