Today is Church Holiday. We all went to first mass this morning & then came home & ate breakfast & dinner. Uncle Fred, Aunt Mary & Emil were all here, after that Oscar Birkner’s family came to get the wash stand. Emil was here to see about butchering. Henry & family went to Waterloo today. We all went in to Belleville, Aunt Mary took some eggs along in & sold 3 doz. for .35¢. We bought some toys for the kids Christmas presents. The Hecker people were all mostly presented in there. Ike Napiers moved today from the Knapp place to Ed. Meng’s again, Sensel & Pannebecker Blackburn moved him back, he was only up there about 3 months. Adam Eckert’s birthday is today.
