I wrote an order for blank cards and one for printed envelopes and went up town and mailed them this morning. Came home and practiced writing a little before dinner. This afternoon did some more grubbing in the clearing, and some hoeing of weeds. I went over to Neill’s tonight and got some vinegar and some apples. No rain as yet and everything is very dry. I hope no one will be starting fires.
