Angela Eichenseer was here this afternoon, then Rosalia & Angela & Papa & Bertille we won 4 games out of 5 that one we lost. Fr. Grootens has a sermon about the bank this morning. He said the Waterloo Bank. Jas. Schmidt, Roy Gauer, Dr. Pintler & him were going to Springfield tomorrow & find out about it. This evening Angela came back again then we played 2 more games of pinochle & Rosalia & Angela won both of them. We heard today that Rosie & Mamie Meuth left Joe Meuth’s last Tues. evening, walked off & went to Waterloo. There are a good many cars passing tonight I guessed there all going to the dance down at Wiegand’s, we were invited, but didn’t go. It rained all day.
