Thursday, October 8, 1936



plesant and cool
Finished the ironing
combed Mothers hair and washed her neck and ears
Harry came and brought 7 pigeons and pumpkins and 3 pts milk and cans of water and concord grapes-
We went to Ludlowville for tea and coffee and to Ben Worsells for Catauba grapes*-
We raked up the horse chestnuts-
