This was the last day of the fair and I can settle down after this, I think. It began to rain this morning and was at it all day I had nothing to protect me from the rain but happened to get a ride with Fred Neill, and have the protection of his umbrella. I received a first premium on my card writing, and a record on my plate of R.L. Greenings. I was too tired tonight to do anything but sleep.
