Papa went down to Red Bud to get some lumber this morning. Hy. Armstutz is cutting oats today. Nick Schaefer is on the binder (?) and Hy. & Arthur are shocking. It was in today’s paper that Mr. & Mrs. Colonel Lindbergh have a little son born last Sunday at 3:15 p.m. They didn’t know what they was going to called it yet. Some said “Charles Augustus” and others said “Charles Morrow” in honor of the grandfather. It will be in tomorrows paper what they are going to call it. Papa is setting fence posts this afternoon. “Dick” Stahlebher & John Wertz were here at noon hour & John wanted to look at our little leghorn chick. He was going to talk to his papa about them once and would (let) us know later. He is working over at Meng’s today, hauling mist. Rosalia & Bertille went out to Henry’s this evening to water the horses. Henry & Emil are cutting oats. After supper we all went out to set posts. We had spring chicken for dinner today. It sure was good.
