I got up at 2 o’clock this morning, fed Jimmie, go breakfast for Dor and myself, and at 3 we were on the road to Frankfort. We got there at 6, an hour before boat time. I stayed to see Dor off and then started for home. I took a lunch and fed Jimmie some oats near a spring just this side of Frankfort. Got back at 10:31 and left Fred Neill’s buggy at home. Quite a number of persons have been here picking strawberries today. I went up town for the mail tonight. Got a letter for Kate from home. I received some specimens of writing from a penman in Chicago, think with a little training I might do nearby as well.
