Papa & Rosalia went out to Henry’s all day. They took 2 chickens along for dinner. Bertille stayed home & ironed & patched. It was pretty hot today. Dr. Eckert’s father died from old age & heat. Mr. Rennecker came over on the porch with us a little while. Jacob Erle & John Wittenaur’s machine got smashed tonight. Wittenauer’s car was standing by Eichenseer’s when Jac.

His car was pulled to Red Bud on a wrecking car. Wittenaur’s is standing in Eichenseer’s back yard.
