We are baking bread & coffee cake today. Papa furnished harrowing this morning & this afternoon started plowing. We had company this afternoon, they were neighbors to Mr. Greinvell at Smithton. They wanted to buy some leghorn pullets, but they only wanted about 5 or 6 & we couldn’t sell them that way, they either had to take them all or’s none. There were some gypsies went through Hecker with the wagon & horses. We found 27 eggs today. We took 5 doz. off & got .25¢ a doz. Mrs. Adolph Rittemeyer is on the sick list at present the way we heard.

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.
