It rained rather easy thought, the most of the forenoon. I was rather slow about getting my breakfast and clearing things away, took a shave, and after caring for Jimmie, I went up town to see about getting a cultivator. I thought I could get a spring tooth, but I changed my mind tonight and had Mr. Hopkins order an Acme for me. I did a little more plowing this afternoon. Fred Waters was here for a little while this afternoon. I went up town with him; he goes to Manistee tomorrow. I got a letter from Kate tonight, which makes me feel good. Spent part of the evening at Neill’s. I feel pretty tired.
