Had a tearing time with Morrow’s hens this forenoon. I am thinking it will in time spoil our neighborly feelings, as I can’t stand it to have them destroy my garden. Kate went to church and I took care of the baby. It rained very hard while they were in church, but cleared for them to come home. It has rained hard by spells all the day. I got along with the baby firstrate. Fred Neill came over a while this afternoon, we picked some strawberries and I gave him 4 quarts. Kate is sick with headache tonight. I feel very sleepy. Wrote a letter to ma today.
