I worked at digging around Grape vines the best share of the day. I found more vines than I expected to. I had a good many pickers in the strawberry patch this forenoon. Nearly 2 bushels have been picked today. Jimmie has acted so that I have not had him hitched up at all today. I went up town tonight and took the washing to Mrs. Bradford. Got the Leader and a letter from A.S. Barnes & Co. It has been quite a warm today.
