Today we washed, ironed, patched.  Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary where up all day, working in there garden & pulling weeds.  It is awful cool today, cold wind.  Papa went over to Mengs this afternoon & got his horses, & started plowing the chicken yard.  There was a man here trying to sell burglar alarms to prevent the chickens, cause so much stealing has been carried on in Monroe Co.
