I felt better today and have been doing a little work. Burned the log piles back of the barn and made it look cleaner there. Cut what little corn I had, think I may get 2 bushels of ears. I picked some apples this afternoon. Went up town this afternoon, after supper and got the mail. I got some different kinds of card ink of Packard. Received a letter from ma and got some papers from home too. The baby has seemed better today and we hope she will get well right along.
