Cloudy & misting all day. We went to Waterloo got egg mash etch; stopped at Henry’s awhile; they have a little cold, boys didn’t got to school on account of the weather. We cleaned basement this afternoon & also the shed. We went to bed early, full nights sleep.

Last day of the year. Pap & Berti went to Waterloo this morning, got egg mash, went to see Bershe & Ziebold’s Radios. Mr. Jerome Vogt came, counted our pigs & pap had to sign contracts. Papa went to Chris Buehler’s this afternoon, he bought 3 heifers $42 from him. An egg peddler Moll stopped looked at our cows, the one is sold, he might come back again later on, but the time the other one will have a calf. Mr. Streck came out & looked the cattle over, but didn’t buy.
