Went to the creek for water this morning before breakfast. There was a little dew last night. The day has been very pleasant and comfortable. I hoed fodder corn this forenoon. Had to go up town this afternoon to attend the meeting of the County Agricultural Society. They have put me on as supt. of one of the fruit divisions. Stopped at Neill’s as I came back and Jessie gave me some apples and currants. Kate received a letter from Nellie, and I a postal from Irvie’s who is only about 4 miles out in the town of Homestead.
