We went to Red Bud to church, took Mrs. Stauenfbiel along. They have euchre on Nov. 3, papa gave $1.00 for donation. Uncle Fred Aunt Mary & Miss Josie Keller & Miss Isabel Kuhn where all here for dinner & supper. We all went out to John Kaltwasser to gather some hickory nuts in his woods, but there wasn’t many there, about ½ bucket full; then from there we went over to Roy Stauenfbiels, but he say, there wasn’t any there either, Gus, was there, so they talked around awhile, then we stopped in at the church place, Frank Birkner & family came there to; the cemetery is plowed up again, the house is all stucco finished outside, & all hardwood floors up & down, plastered walls, new doors, furnace for the basement, the barn is all new boards all around it; everything fixed dandy. Henry & family came up this evening. This afternoon is Mission Rally at the Orphanage at Glen Addi, being Mission Sunday.

We cleaned house, washed curtains. A man was here trying to take orders for an orphanage, he was from St. Louis, we didn’t take any. This afternoon Johson [possibly Johnson] the fellow what works for Zeibold was here trying to sell skill gas stoves, & also washing machines. Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary where up this afternoon making garden, potatoes, onions, lettuce, radishes, we helped awhile. Papa went out to Henry’s all day helping to sew oats. He was there for dinner. Jung the egg man from Red Bud was here & got 18 doz. eggs @ 10½¢. standard price, the way he said, I guess he won’t stop no more, if another egg man comes in & wants to buy our eggs for that price.
