Today is Easter.  Henry & family were here for breakfast.  The rabbit laid the boy’s egg again.  This afternoon we drove out to Uncle Fred’s but there was no one at home, so we drove out past the cemetery, but we couldn’t get in their, the gate was locked shut then we drove back home again.  Then we went to Waterloo, Coxeyville to see Mr. Miester Jr. the fellow that bought our horses, but they sure do look bad.  We came back home again about 3:30.  Papa went up town.  Bill Matzenbacher has a new Whippet, everybody getting new cars.  There was a man here, wanted to buy eggs, but we wanted 20¢ & he wouldn’t pay that.  There was a man here from Belleville & bought 2 doz. for 20¢.  Odillo Eichenseer & Angela drove down here with his car & showed it to us.  This evening Philip & Bill came & then we went along with them to Belleville to a show.  “It Pays to Advertise” was the name of it.

Today is Easter Sunday.  But Nobody came.  So in the afternoon we drove out to Aunt Mary’s for supper.  We just got home and got the chicks put away and everything done, and it just poured down rain, thundering and lightning.  The way we heard Kean’s found Mrs. Agnes Hirst death in bed this morning.  If she would have lived until May 20, she would of been 69 years old.  She is to be buried Wednesday afternoon, services at home and then to the private cemetery.  There is to be a dance at (inlegible) Schaefer’s tonite.  It is his birthday but we were not invited.
