New Years Day & it is beautiful, sun shining nice, but roads are terrible. Voges of Lords Corner came out yesterday with wagon & 4 horses, don’t see that very often anymore. Most people walked out, to hard road. We went to Red Bud mass, received 1938 calandar [sic] & Sunday Visitor from Fr. Spors, was home all day. Probst & Kreheres brought our share of clover seed, 2 bus. Leo & Rose [Rosalia] came down, & we went along with them out to Uncle Freds.
