Papa went up to Jake Neff’s this morning and when he got there Ed was still in bed yet so after awhile Ed came down here & him & Papa went out to Henry’s & got his team & went up in the woods to haul posts.  They came back at dinner time.  Ed was here for dinner.  Papa went out in the woods this afternoon again.  Rosalia planted some beet seed, radish & beans this morning after the rain.  We washed & ironed, patched today.  There were 3 fellows here this morning that goes around demonstrating washing machines, the Maytag’s. They wanted to see Papa, but he was out at Henry’s or rather up in the woods.  This afternoon there was a man by the name of Herzog from Belleville here.  He wanted to fix up landscaping.  But we didn’t want to do it, so he left.  This evening those washing machine men came here again & then Papa was at home.  The Misses Lela & Ethel Denker & Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary were here this evening.
