The paper says last nite that there was teribble [sic] tornado in Memphis Tennessee. 8 killed, 5 injured so far. Papa went out to get a load of wood but it was to soft, he got stuck, he stopped at Henry’s awhile. Rosalia & Bertille went out to Uncle Freds this afternoon & helped clean house, had lunch there. They varnished the middle room floor, got the big room all fixed up already. Fredrick Fristche was here & wanted 2 settings of eggs, but we didn’t have it on hand, so he is coming tomorrow evening.
