Abbie B., age 22, Kansas

I wanted to wash but it was cloudy. I baked however, and sewed. J. R. will not be here this week, he will help Jake make hay. It is much pleasanter for me, when brother and I are alone. Jake rode by this eve with a big bunch of onions, when I asked for my pennys worth, he said it was up at the house, and if not worth coming for, I could not have it. Then he threw a big onion at me, and rode on.

I am to help Mrs. Rose with her sewing some day this week.  Mr. R wanted to know who  Observer was that wrote up the picnic foot the paper.
