Thursday, Sept. 4, 1930

Today is Rosalia’s birthday, she is 19 years old.  Bertille baked 3 birthday cakes this morning.  Papa went over to Freeburg this morning & got some tiling for a well.  We are having chicken soup for dinner.  Papa went out in the Blackjacks to see a man by the name of Hover this afternoon.  This evening Uncle Fred, Aunt Mary, Christ Buehler’s family & Henry & family were all here celebrating Rosalia’s birthday, music was played & watermelons, cakes, doughnuts, lemonade were the refreshments.  There was a man here this afternoon trying to sell watermelon, he came from Sparta.  But we didn’t buy any because we already had two.
