Cloudy all day rain this evening. Ben and Paul and Owen cut tobacco. They filled four houses.

Mr Dews and the boys helped them.

Josie helped to unload every time in the morning. She baked three chocolate pies for Sundays dinner. We are looking for Mary and Bill Brumfield to morrow. Hope it will not rain so they wont come.

A good day. The men folks finished moving a house of tobacco and filled it with green tobacco.

Josie went to Carries this morning and stayed with the children while Marvin and Carrie went to Altavista.

They eat supper before they come home. Josie and her children. I got dinner at home and gathered some beans.

Paul has gone home this evening is to come back to night. Hope nothing will happen to him or the car.

I got a letter from Alma and Evelyn to day. I was glad to hear from them.

A good day. The men folks moved two curings of tobacco and cut two rooms of green tobacco.

Josie picked up some apples and got dinner. I churned and picked some beans this morning. In the evening I went to Marvins a few minutes and picked a few more beans then went to the tobacco ground and helped to load the waggon and to the barn and helped to unload so as to hurry Ben and Paul. They wanted to go to Altavista and I did not want them to be late.

Josie had supper ready when we got to the house. While we were eating, Denia come and brought me a pan of light bread. I certainly was glad of the bread. Was sorry that Denia had so much trouble but I do appreciate it.

9 oclock

Ben and Paul and Josie are at Altavista tonight.

A rainy day. Ben and Owen fired tobacco all day. Josie had a hurting in her back and was not able to work this morning. Was some better off this evening and made some sweetmeats and pickle.

I got dinner and then went to see Carrie a while.

I am so sorry for Ben tonight. It is raining so hard and he is at the barn.
