A day that the men folks could work most of the time. They moved tobacco and scattered sticks ready for cutting. We all tied primings and finished. Josie got dinner.

I went to the tomato patch this evening. Could not get many tomatoes. Brought a water mellon home. We cut it. It was fine.

It is raining now hope it may stop soon. Ben went to Ren Worshams this evening and to Strait Stone this morning. Paul carried his mother to Lee Brumfields this morning. Guess she is at Kate Harveys to night.
