Went to Red Bud, Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary had lunch here, another hot day & wind again. Smithon [sic] has Turner Pinic [sic] today. Willie Myerscough of near New Athens was overcome by heat and died this morn. pap’s Solemn Coummioun [sic] partner, they use to live close to Hecker went to church at Hecker. There are 500 people that have died from the heat. Northern states just like deserts, so dry, stock dying so fast that the owners have to bury them; more terrible, the corn dying here. We went to the turner pinic [sic] at Smithon [sic] this evening.
