Pigeo’s about her dress. – – Rose and Stuart have certainly tried my patience today. – – Pigeo and Nan made some very nice molasses of watermelons today.1 – – Patsy and Parky are still out. I’ve had very little spinning done this Fall. – – Had sage picked today by Frank. Dellah does very little at weaving. – – Rose wrote to her Mother. Her first letter.
