Arose at 4:30 this morning and got ready for Frankfort, which I reached at about 10 o’clock. Did some trading, found that the box had not come yet and started for home about 11 o’clock. I stopped at outlet bay and unhitched Jimmie, fed him and ate my dinner. Reached home at 2:30 this afternoon. Kate and I then went to work putting up window shades. We got 3 of them finished. Mrs. Hubbell called as we were eating supper. I went up town this evening, wore my new suspender coat and vest; they feel very comfortable this hot weather.
