Bertille took the eggs to Eichenseer’s this morning. She had 2 dozen and got .34¢ a dozen from them. We sent a letter to New Athens Lumber Co. to pay for the lumber used for the chicken house. The check amounted to $187.96. Hurray tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Rosalia took eggs to Braun’s this afternoon. She got .34¢ a dozen. She had 2 dozen too. We found 15 eggs today. The roads are awful muddy now. It took 4 horses to pull Pabst truck up Kemps hill this morning. He said the worst place was by Blackburn’s lane. Papa & Rosalia put concrete in the chicken house (some of it) this afternoon.
