Maggie L., age 24, Illinois

Very hot and dry. I went to Mrs. Fishers to sew. I am to get 60 cents a day and stay right there. Zella and I went down to Aunt Sarah’s in the evening. Zella and Nellie Bouk went and rented a wheel and Nellie and I tried to teach Zella to ride. We looked terrible when we finished running through the dusty streets. Got a letter from home.
