Irvie and I did a lot of cleaning, and grubbing back of the shed today. Irvie went up and got the mail towards evening; he got his blanks so he can go to work now. He packed his things after supper and started for Mr. Waters’ where he will stay tonight. I went with him as far as the saw mill, and there we fished a little. Irvie caught 4, which I brought home and cleaned. He is going to Joyfield in the morning and soon south towards Manistee and around to Frankfort before going home. It will seem lonesome without him now.
