Bertille was at church this morning. Papa went along with Eichenseer to Belleville to haul desks out to the new school this morning. Bertille took 3 doz. eggs to the store & got .19¢ a doz. The price of springs [chicken] at the store is .25¢ for the heaviest ones. Papa, Rosalia, Bertille, Mamie Eichenseer, Aunt Mary, we all went to Belleville this afternoon. Rosalia & Bertille got new dresses and also got caps. We were also by a fellow named Smith to see a Jersey Heifer between Smithton & Freeburg. Aunt Mary came along up to Hecker with us. We did our work up then we went out to Uncle Fred’s for supper.
