July 20th, Sunday
A fair day which we spent over at (brother) Ernest’s. (North of Ralston, where Daryl Toyne lives today.)
The ‘Coon (Raccoon River) is going down slowly and the fields everywhere are very wet.
Small grain harvesting and time haying are pushing each other for first place in consideration.
Yesterday was a very bad day being a continuation of the preceding one.
I went down to Hexie (creek) in the P.M. and repaired our East fence.
Was called on by W.L.Z, to whom, or with whom, I subscribed $2.00 for the minister.
