Papa made a patch ready to sew turnip seed this morning. Steve Rennecker came over to him a little while. We planted some more pickle & beet seed this morning. The ground goes nice working. Papa sowed the turnip seed this evening. Henry & family were all here this evening, they brought 3 sacks of potatoes up here. Last Monday Valentine Fritche was hit by an automobile. He was going towards St. Louis with a coop of chickens & other things, & not one of his chickens were alive any more. He was thrown 20 ft. from the wagon & his horses were hurt so bad that he had to kill one of them. He is Belleville in the hospital. It happened on the Belleville road by Jake Buehler’s place. His wife wasn’t along because she is in E. St. Louis paralysis. The way we was told. I guess we will hear more about it later on.
