Today is Henry Eichelmann’s sale, 3 miles east of Waterloo. Uncle Fred came up this morning and Papa took the horses & went down & got Henry Armstutz’s wagon to haul the lumber home & kindling what they bought by the new school house. Rosalia & Uncle Fred hauled it with the Whippet. Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary were here for dinner. After dinner they went home & dressed & came back again. Then we all went to Henry Eichelmann’s sale. It was late till we got back again. Everything went pretty cheap back there.
