Papa & Rosalia duged [sic] potatoes this morning.  Bertille baked bread & coffeecake.  This afternoon the threshing machines where all going to start again, but around 1 o clock we had a shower rain, so that put them back another day, I guess.  Just before noon today, there was a car passed here, with 4 ladies dressed as gypsies.  Clifford told us they took $15.00 from George Neff, the two of them where in Eichenseer’s store.  Clifford brought our mail along too.  Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary was here again this evening, he went to Red Bud.  It rained mostly all night.
