Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary stopped awhile. A nice, beautiful day, are rather all week, was wonderful. We took a drive out in the country, visited at Glenn Addie, Orphanage, & Scottfield, some wonderful places. This evening we went out to Nic Helfrich’s, see him about coal hauling, then went to Uncle Fred’s, played pinochle. Uncle had 1500 trumps.

Papa is going out to Henry’s to help him haul logs.  He was there for dinner.  Mrs. Louise Birkner was here this morning & brought us a flower.  A man from St. Louis was here & wanted to see Papa.  We washed & ironed today.  There was a man here & wanted to sell Oriental Rugs, they were sailor boys, & had to go to the water again, & wanted to sell the rugs first.  Fr. Tuger of the St. Johns Orphanage at Belleville died & will be buried Wed. morning at Glen Addie.
