Today there is homecoming in New Athens. This evening we went out to Henry’s a little while, they are going to thrash Monday morning. I saw in the paper that Mr. & Mrs. Raymond Koch have the blessing of a little boy since last Thursday. They now have a boy and a girl. Mr. [and Mrs.] Jacob Miller celebrated their 29th wedding anniversary on July 2.

Aunt Mary and Uncle Fred had dinner with us. Henry was up for church, then went home because they wanted to go away. After dinner we went up to church. We had lenten service. After we came down from church, the St. Louis people were here. Mr. & Mrs. Sigmund Dudenhoefer, Ellen Adams (their niece) & Frank Singer and Ervin Lensinger (?). They all had lunch here. Then we all got our picture taken, one on the front and one on the South side by the well. The men Papa, Uncle Fred and Sigmund, got a picture taken by the chicken house. In the evening, Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary came back again. They brought some potatoes up to Brauns store. Mr. Jake Koch died at New Athens today. Ed Parker’s little baby girl died suddenly.
