We washed bed spread today & cleaned the backyard. Philip Meuth from Jake Neff’s place in blackjacks was here this morning, he said he didn’t want our leghorn springs, he could get them cheaper some where else. Mike Armstutz was here this afternoon a little while talking to Papa in the field. Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary was here this evening, from here they went to a dance at Fred Weber’s barn. Annie Herzog invited them to come over, they were going to celebrate Joe Herzog’s birthday. We found 21 eggs today. I seen in the paper that Victor Metze, son of John Metze and Miss Florence Crook, daughter of Cora Crook of Belleville will be married soon. Last week Leo Metze had his marriage license in the paper. He married a Horn girl.

Today is Rosalia’s birthday, she is 19 years old. Bertille baked 3 birthday cakes this morning. Papa went over to Freeburg this morning & got some tiling for a well. We are having chicken soup for dinner. Papa went out in the Blackjacks to see a man by the name of Hover this afternoon. This evening Uncle Fred, Aunt Mary, Christ Buehler’s family & Henry & family were all here celebrating Rosalia’s birthday, music was played & watermelons, cakes, doughnuts, lemonade were the refreshments. There was a man here this afternoon trying to sell watermelon, he came from Sparta. But we didn’t buy any because we already had two.
Papa is harrowing this morning. Rosalia went up to church. Then after church, she is supposed to help clean the hall in the new school on Aunt Mary’s place, all the girls & women are supposed to help from the west side of the highway. She came home at noon. Papa went up in the woods to see if he could get some gravel & then he went to see a fellow back in the Blackjacks. After dinner Bertille went up to Angela’s to see if she & Hildegard were ready to go up to wash windows, but they wasn’t ready. Angela couldn’t go until 4 o’clock so Bertille and Hildegard went up at 3:30 & then afterwards Angela came. We finished at 6 o’clock.
