Quite cool after the rain and hail. Bill with Uncle David transplanted about 1000 potato plants and a row of tomato’s Ju gave me. – – I sent a rooster and six hens to the quarters for Lucy to raise, one half for the other. – – Bettie got out clothes to wash, but complained of being sick. Bill employed a man to get rails at $.50 per day. He rode Phil to Mrs. McGeorge’s for seed corn, planted a little this evening, one hand and one drag. Uncle David hauling rails to enclose clover lot.
