We have been at the fence business again today. It rained some this forenoon so that we had to quit work and come to house. I cut Irvie’s hair and he cut mine, we had considerable sport over it. We went up town towards evening and got the mail and did some trading. Irvie got no blanks that he expected so he will have to wait a while before beginning active work. I received a letter from ma tonight.
