We washed this morning.  Henry & Leona went to Belleville & also to the coal mines & got a load of coal for the church.  They left the kids here, they came back about 4 o’clock, they left at 10am this morning, but they had to wait so long to get a load of coal.  Sister Several call up this morning and wanted to know if Papa would go to Red Bud this morning & get a school desk for the sister, so he did, this afternoon he went to get a load of coal for the church, but there were so many trucks waiting at the coal mine that he went over to Freeburg’s coal mine & there he got 19 bu. 70 lbs. for $1.56.  Rosalia took 8 doz. eggs to the store & got .26¢.  The Catholic School children didn’t have no school today, because it was to cold & the furnace isn’t fixed yet in the new school house, & it is to cold with out fire.
