A good day. Ben & Henry went to Marvin Smiths to hunt minks. Could not start any. They eat breakfast up there. This evening Ben looked for the turkeys that is missing but did not find them. Grace B come and brought us some apples. Lee come and got the cider mill. Henry went to spend the night with Hugh Brumfield. I have not worked much today. Would be glad I had done more. Will have to make up for my idleness to morrow if I am able. I heard today that Levi East is dead. I knowed him when he was a little boy.
