Abbie B., age 23, Kansas

Baked. Slow raising and took me all morning. Plenty of rain last night. The storm must have been terrific out on the prairie. Philip saw a hoarder who told him a heard of 2000 cattle had stampeeded in the night and scattered in every direction. Not likely they will ever find them all. I am so glad they never come this way.  *(, Kansas State Historical Society, copy and reuse restrictions apply)
