Bertille baked cookies this morning. Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary came up this morning, & then Papa went along with Uncle Fred to Waterloo to see a party there. They were here for dinner & supper. After dinner Uncle Fred & Papa went out to see Wm. Harbaugh, but he wasn’t at home. Then they went to see Jos. Braun & he wasn’t at home. So about 2 o’clock they called him up & then he was at home, so they went there & had a talk with him. Then they went into Waterloo again & then down to see Arma & John Braun. Henry & Leona went to Red Bud to the dentist this afternoon & left the kids here. Bertille got the mail this evening. Rosalia finished sewing aprons. Aunt Mary & Bertille started piecing the quilt together that we started. There was quilting this afternoon at the School Hall but none of us went there. Henry was by Christ Buehler’s today & brought a Red Rooster along for $1.00. The bank is now sealed shut since last Tuesday. Mr. Burkhardt of Red Bud has the book, bonds.
