Cool and windy. Bill had potato ground bedded and worked some in the garden. I am afraid it will run away with grass if Bettie continues sick much longer. Had the first dish of peas today. I have been cooking now for nearly a week. Bill rode Phil to the C. H. and the rain kept him all night. I asked him to enquire of Suddie about fixing the carriage. Have no way to go from home at all.
