Papa went to Waterloo again this morning.  Wm. Ganley was here this morning.  Papa (had dinner out there too) went to Henry’s first and helped him get his pig pen fixed so when the man comes with pigs, so it was ready.  He got the mule this morning & brought Henry the pigs.  Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary came up this evening & brought a 40 lb. watermelon along up to eat, so I called Leona & told them to come up too, so they did but still we couldn’t eat it all.  Eggs are .32¢.

Quibold was over in St. Louis at the Radio Exposition and we won an automobile radio and he has four children and each one received $25 a piece to put in the bank until they are 21 years of age.  He sure was lucky.  Aunt Mary brought a watermelon along and we ate it just before we went to bed.
