It rained some this morning. I went over to Neill’s to get Mrs. Neill to bake me a load of bread. I cultivated out some of the strawberries this forenoon. I think I will plow up some of it; the grass is so bad. Planted considerable sweet corn this afternoon and sowed more cabbage seed. I went up town about 5 o’clock this afternoon, got a postal from Kate stating that she would stat today if she could, but it has been so stormy I fear she did not. She will telegraph t me from Manistee so I will know tomorrow forenoon if she came. I took supper at Neill’s tonight. Fred is going to Frankfort in the morning.
