I slept pretty well last night, if I was all alone, but I shall be a thousand times happier when Kate comes. I made a stone boat this forenoon, and got Fred Neill’s one horse plow I took a long nap at noon, I felt so kind of tired. This afternoon I put Jimmie on the plow and did a little plowing among the plum trees. I got along better ten I expected to with the pony. I made a drag with some spikes, but it does not do good wok and I must get something else. I dug into the potato pit today and they are all so. It looks a little like rain each day, but don’t come. I called at Neill’s tonight.
