It has been cool and cloudy all day. Fred waters came over here this morning to see Irvie and we got ready for church and walked back with him. He goes back to his work in the morning. There was a stranger occupied in the pulpit today; he gave us a good sermon. Irvie went to Mr. Waters’ this afternoon and will spend the night there. I wrote a letter to pa this afternoon. It tries to rain tonight, but don’t think it will succeed.
