Monday, April 14th.
I returned from Dana today, having gone thither with Ernest last night.
This was my first trip to this part of the county. Found a very pretty farming country, tho this is no rarity in Iowa.
This part of Greene Co. is like all of the leveler portions, just coming to its best and is fast advancing in public estimation and the better improved farm bringing as high as $75 per acre. (Better improved is not redundant, since better describes the soil tilth and drainage, while improved means having buildings.)
The weather is quite cool and very dry for April.
