We washed, ironed, patched today. Today is Church Picnic at Ruma and one in Belleville. Papa went to Red Bud this morning with a load of wheat, he got .82¢ a bu. He took Bertille’s shoes along & got them patched for .75¢. Henry Armstutz was here a little while this evening & told Papa if he wanted to he could cut some of the corn. Rosalia went up to get the mail then she went over to see Mrs. Rennecker a little while. Mr. Dehn is still the same, he is getting absent minded now.
