Rosalia went to church this morning. Papa hauled 2 loads of coal this morning. They took Delbert Meuth son of Nick Meuth to the hospital one day last week, where he will be operated on appendix. Mrs. Lorberg is staying with him in the hospital. Papa hauled 5 loads of coal this afternoon. Henry called up and wanted to know if Rosalia could take Leona to Waterloo to the doctor this afternoon, so she took her in. Leona went out to get the mail yesterday afternoon & she ran back to the house & stumbled & cut a big gash in her chin down to the bone. The doctor put a piece of plaster over it to heal, if it don’t heal shut that way then she will have to get it sewed together. I seen in the Times, that Clyde Crowe & Walter Schmidt left last Tuesday for Ada Groves, Iowa to visit with Schmidts relatives. We found 3 dozen eggs today.
