It froze ice last night in the chicken troughs. The people were seen with their overcoats on. Papa went to Waterloo this afternoon and got his watch fixed and the oil changed in the Chev. 11513 miles. Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary went to Red Bud to a sale. They brought us 1/2 bu. sweet potatoes along. I don’t no how much they are. We made fire in the furnace today.
