Papa, Rosalia are painting the chicken houses this morning.  Mr. Theodore Klinkhardt of St. Louis was here a little while this morning.  He is Mrs. Pour’s father.  This afternoon Papa, Rosalia, Bertille, Uncle Fred, Aunt Mary went to George Heyl’s funeral.  It sure was a large one.  Quernheim undertaker.  They have a new hearse.  The funeral was so large that when the hearse was was driving in at the Round Prairie Church, there were still machines leaving the house yet.  People from all over, St. Louis, Red Bud, Waterloo, Hecker.  Mr. Heyl belonged to the Horse Prairie fire insurance co.  He was killed accidentally.  There were over 100 machines at the house and about 100 at the cemetery before the funeral cortege every came.

Today is Gregory Ganley’s birthday.  Lena Meng was over a little while this morning and told Rosalia to get some buttons for her dress.  Uncle Fred and Aunt Mary had lunch with us this afternoon.
