Tuesday, March 11, 1919

A cool windy day the men folks put on the canvas for their plant beds this morning and cut & mauled this evening.

Kate Harvey come a few minutes to day. She eat dinner with us. She brought me some homony. I went with her part the way home. I carried Edna & Franklin to Marvins and Carrie looked after them while I went to Posie Reynolds and got some turnip salit.

We heard to day that Tom Lumpkins and Tom Johnson was dead, one of them at Danville and one at New Port News. Johnson Reynolds went to Danville to be at Lumpkins burial.

Jim got a letter from Nellie telling him that Mr Walker is very sick.

Jim & Ben walked over to the store at Renan to night. Mr Lewis was not there so they come home soon and went to bed.

10 oclock

I finished pickin the 1919 crop of cotton to night.
