We are baking bread & coffee cake today. Papa furnished harrowing this morning & this afternoon started plowing. We had company this afternoon, they were neighbors to Mr. Greinvell at Smithton. They wanted to buy some leghorn pullets, but they only wanted about 5 or 6 & we couldn’t sell them that way, they either had to take them all or’s none. There were some gypsies went through Hecker with the wagon & horses. We found 27 eggs today. We took 5 doz. off & got .25¢ a doz. Mrs. Adolph Rittemeyer is on the sick list at present the way we heard.
