A good day. Jim & Ben hauled wood to the barn. They are thinking a bout cutting tobacco tomorrow.

Josie milked two cows and churned and got dinner.

Marvin carried Grace & I to Worshams pond. We fished all the morning. Did not catch anything. We had dinner with us and enjoyed it.

I wish I was close to the pond so I could go and not bother no one. I am willing to worke as much as I am able. That is a bout all that I ask them to take me and some times they wont do that. I know that I give them here trouble.
