I wrote for about 3 hours this morning trying to calm down my unsteady nerves. Drew wood with Jimmie the rest of the forenoon. Ploughed for Fred Neill this afternoon, it made me pretty tired. Went up town this evening for the mail. Received a postal card from ma, and Farley’s Guide and Copy Slips. We are having cool weather now.
