Rosalia & Bertille went to church this morning.  It is raining again this morning.  Papa went to Waterloo today.  Bertille mailed the letter to Chicago Mail Order.  Bertille got the mail & then we went down to see Deuker’s.  They had company from St. Louis for a little while.  Miss Mason the teacher from the upper school was also there.  We 5 played ruma and then we played bunco.

We washed, ironed, patched today.  Today is Church Picnic at Ruma and one in Belleville.  Papa went to Red Bud this morning with a load of wheat, he got .82¢ a bu.  He took Bertille’s shoes along & got them patched for .75¢.  Henry Armstutz was here a little while this evening & told Papa if he wanted to he could cut some of the corn.  Rosalia went up to get the mail then she went over to see Mrs. Rennecker a little while.  Mr. Dehn is still the same, he is getting absent minded now.
