There was a man here at noon and wanted to sell some rugs & 3 fur coats, but you had to make your price on them, we didn’t take any it looked kind of suspicious, like it might of been stolen goods, the man was from California, and has intended to go to Canada & Montreal. There were 2 men in the car. Papa & Rosalia sold 18 doz. eggs for .40¢ a doz. to some customers in Belleville. Ed Meng was over a little while & took a look at our hogs. He wanted to know if Henry still had his for sale, so Bertille called out to Henry’s & found out. Papa went over to Meng’s & told him & also took his post hole digger back again. The paper says 20 above zero tonight.
