A good day we all staid at home until evening.

Jim & Ben and I went to Marvins. Reese & Paul and Roy come here a while this evening. Today was Henry Brumfields birth day. He was born January the 12th 1833.

If he could of lived he would be 86 years olde.

I am glad that them that is living are well at this time. There is so much sickness that I am in constant dread that some that is dear to me will have the dreadful disease and die as so many others has that was dear to some one.
