Josie went up there and kept the children. They left Hazel at home. Josie says that they done fine. I went up to Marvins a little while then come home. Henry come with me. We shucked corn enough to feed on to night and in the morning. Ben has gone up to Marvins to help hunt a mink that killed a chicken this morning.
A good day. The ice is nearly all gone tonight. Ben went mink hunting this morning, did not find anything. Jim & Ben worked on baskets this evening. They have gone to Renan tonight. Josie got dinner. She worked on a basket all the time that she could today. Tonight she has a head ache. I hope she will feel better in the morning. 8 30 oclock
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.
