It was a very cool morning and I finished plowing in the peach orchard. Went up to the telegraph office at noon and sure enough I got a message from Kate saying that she would be at Frankfort tonight. I ate my dinner and then hitched Jimmie to Fred Neill’s double buggy and came down to Frankfort. Kate and Dor came on the [De…?] about 6 o’clock. I was awful glad to see then. We are staying at the Park House. It was a nice day for them to come. I thought it would be to[sic] late to go to Benzonia tonight.
