Today is sales all over again. Mrs. Hirst, Fred Schaefer and many others. Papa is spreading lime this morning. This afternoon we all went to Mrs. Hirst sale. Papa bought a harrow for $1.50. Roy Staunbiel bought a bed and we had to haul it up to Jennie Coop’s for them. This evening we took the spring wagon out to Roy’s and from there we went to Uncle Fred’s and took them along & then we went to Hy. Ronedebergs dance. Beer, cake, fruit salad were the refreshments. There is also a dance at Bill Probst’s tonight too. John Reheis have one by Burksville too.

Today is Easter Sunday. But Nobody came. So in the afternoon we drove out to Aunt Mary’s for supper. We just got home and got the chicks put away and everything done, and it just poured down rain, thundering and lightning. The way we heard Kean’s found Mrs. Agnes Hirst death in bed this morning. If she would have lived until May 20, she would of been 69 years old. She is to be buried Wednesday afternoon, services at home and then to the private cemetery. There is to be a dance at (inlegible) Schaefer’s tonite. It is his birthday but we were not invited.
