Drew some water from the creek this morning. Cultivated the front yard and among the young pear trees, it was hard cultivating and made Jimmie and I sweat. Tied up some tomatoes and pruned them into shape. I wrote a letter to Effie this afternoon. Kate, baby and I went up town and called at Dr. Taylor. Mrs. Taylor’s sister is there with a friend from Ann Arbor. I received a letter from Irving McColl; he is in Traverse City. I hope he will surely come and see us before he goes back. I am going to hoe corn for Fred Neill in the morning.
