Today is Flag day but I didn’t see very many flags floating. Leona called this morning and wanted to know if one of us could come out there today and watch the kids, her and Henry was going to cultivate corn. So Papa & Rosalia went out. Papa went to Waterloo & Rosalia stayed there, she had dinner there. Papa came home for dinner. After dinner, Papa went to New Athens & Freeburg on business. We have an invitation from Mrs. Cleveland to go to Weber’s barn dance, it is Mrs. Weber’s birthday. I don’t know if we will go yet or not. I seen posters today for Harry Kammlers dance next Saturday, the 28 of June. I noticed in todays Belleville News Democrat that Edward Neff from 19 North Church Street was in the hospital undergoing medical attention. And also that Miss Ester Ida Dalkert had her name analysis. She is from Waterloo, Ill. Miss Irene Roth analyzed it for her. Good many people are cutting wheat already. Steve Rennecker went out shocking for Jake Klein. Henry & family came up this evening & brought Rosalia along back with them, they didn’t get off of the machine because they wanted to go to Waterloo to get their machine, they had theirs in there getting it fixed up in running condition. We stayed at home this evening. George Wagner & Bernice, Charles, Melvin were over here this evening a little while. He came to get a spring chicken for Sunday. We sold him one for .75¢ a piece. He took 1. Afterwards Papa went along with him to see his barn. Ralph Rausch took a motor cycle ride this evening. The motor cop is on the road now. I think he was on Saturday anyway.
