Uncle Fred came up & helped Papa haul straw this morning. He was here for lunch. Before noon he went home & got Aunt Mary & then they both was here for dinner. We had chicken dinner. After dinner we went down to George Vonderveil sale. Papa bought 400 worth of stuff, a shovel & a spring buggy. Everything went cheap there too. Henry Birkner bought a horse for $7.00. This evening Jac. Anderson & his son were here and looked at the mare and colt. He thought maybe he would take her. He is going to let us know tomorrow morning. Today is Catholic Church picnic at Red Bud.
