I got up early this morning and went to the creek for water. Went to the tore after breakfast, and have been working there all day. When I went after my mail tonight, I found Irvie’s satchel there, so I brought it home with me and found him here. We have been having a good visit this evening. It has been a pretty hot day and is very smokey, so much that is hurts my eyes.
