We found 24 eggs today. Mr. Wilson was here this afternoon trying to sell us the dixie feeds. Edward Neff was here this evening & played pinochle with us. Papa & Bertille got one out of six games. Bertille took 3 dozen eggs to Eichenseers this morning, got .23¢ a dozen. We started building our brooder house today. Bertille wrote a letter to the Eureka Hatchery to find out the price of W. Leghorns. Mrs. Adam Braun wanted to buy some. Mr. Adam Vogl’s daughter was buried today. She died from diphtheria and flu.
