July 5, 1902

A burning day and every body is on the shelf since the “Ever Glorious” (celebrations on the Fourth of July).

It –the weather- seemed to be very considerate of those patriotically disposed, as the rain was discontinued for about forty hours allowing the roads to become passably dry & old Scranton was able to scare up a little dust for the thousands who came from all parts of the County.

Today Harve and I put six more cattle over into the Stevenson pasture.

Cedar Creek is nearly “bank full” (his emphasis) and the old “coon” (Raccoon River) is rolling black (flowing with a great deal of silt).
