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.

Bertille baked cookies this morning.  Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary came up this morning, & then Papa went along with Uncle Fred to Waterloo to see a party there.  They were here for dinner & supper.  After dinner Uncle Fred & Papa went out to see Wm. Harbaugh, but he wasn’t at home.  Then they went to see Jos. Braun & he wasn’t at home.  So about 2 o’clock they called him up & then he was at home, so they went there & had a talk with him. Then they went into Waterloo again & then down to see Arma & John Braun.  Henry & Leona went to Red Bud to the dentist this afternoon & left the kids here.  Bertille got the mail this evening.  Rosalia finished sewing aprons.  Aunt Mary & Bertille started piecing the quilt together that we started.  There was quilting this afternoon at the School Hall but none of us went there.  Henry was by Christ Buehler’s today & brought a Red Rooster along for $1.00.  The bank is now sealed shut since last Tuesday.  Mr. Burkhardt of Red Bud has the book, bonds.
