Today is Confirmation at Evansville & Red Bud.  Ivo Buehler is getting confirmed in Red Bud this afternoon.  Adam Eckert is his sponsor.  Father Grooten stopped here this morning and asked Papa to help work on the new school.  So Papa went up this morning & also this afternoon.  Nick Schaefer, Jos. Schilling and Jack Helfrich are working there.  We sold 26 lbs. springs .32¢ a lb. $8.32 the other day, last Monday.  Rosalia took 2 doz. eggs off and got .17¢ a dozen.  It rained a little this afternoon, but not very much.  This evening Rosalia & Bertille went up town.  There is dairy meeting at the school house & the Y.P.L. have meeting at their church.  Henry came up for the milk meeting.  He was down here a little while before he went.  Ida Kammler was sitting on the porch & we went over a little while.  Billy’s pussy’s are both gone and he can’t find them no more.

Today all the Ladies of the Parish have to clean the church for confirmation.  Wednesday, the Bishop is coming.  Leona, Robert, Floyd were here this morning.  Leona & Bertille went to church.  Rosalia helped to scrub the church this morning.  Bertille went up to practice singing for Wednesday.  Father Grooten called up this morning and wanted to know if he could use the Whippet.  Papa said “yes.”  So he came down and Johnny was here too.  Papa went along with him to Chester.  He said he wanted to get some rock for the school house.  So Papa went with Father too, so I guess he will see Chester for the first time.  Rosalia & Bertille went up to Eichenseer’s and got Mamie and then we went to Joseph Braun’s & took our pillow slips back for the picnic.  There was a Jefferson Club meeting in Hecker tonight, at Griffin’s Hall.  In Kammler’s Hall the boys were tearing the stage out ready for the dance Saturday night.
