Papa & Bertille finished the potatoe [sic] patch. John Griffins & Noel Roscow went to attend World’s Fair this week, Stella Roscow attended last week; she surely enjoyed it. There are quite a few people very sick, Chris Buehler, Million Wagner, Arthur Barthel all have summer flu, or thphoid [sic – typhoid] fever. There were 2 men here again, talking about the brewery at Red Bud, where is to be built soon. It is awful warm again.
