Papa went butchering out at Uncle Adam’s today, he was there for lunch & dinner. He had to go to George Henkel’s this morning first and get the hogs for them. We washed, ironed, baked cookies, fry in meat today. Elmer Kammler, John Braun, Willie Braun, Gus. Klotz are all butchering today. It is a right nice day, only it is a little cold. This morning they had to shoot so many times before they killed the hogs at Henkels, Emil, John, George & Papa they all shot a couple of times & finally George killed them with the last bullet, they had. Good Luck wasn’t it, I Say! Levi Gregson’s, Papa & Henry help them to butcher.
