We canned saurkraut, [sic] 8 qts from 2 gallons.  We washed this morning, started about 10 o clock, because it looked so like rain.  This afternoon we went out to Aunt Mary’s helped with the peaches.  We had lunch & supper there.  Henry & Leona came there too & left the kids there, while they went to Belleville.  She took a basket of peaches along from her, they also got a bu. from Ralph Collier’s at Waterloo, for 50¢.  This evening Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary stopped here, they went down to see Adam Eckert he is in bed, with Rhuematism [sic] since Sat a week, it started, he had to crawl in the house, it is so in his legs.  It was in the paper that Anton Buehler left Mon. for Mascoutah, where he will be the guest of Chas. Mueth’s family.
