Boyd County, Nebraska
Was damp in morning so Will sharpened sickle at Brad’s and I went along. When Howard came back from taking Harlan and Billie to school they started to mow hay on our place and our mower broke so Will went to Spencer, came at noon just before an awful shower, so in p.m. after nap, he went to Knoll’s and sharpened axe at Brad’s, got corn in evening on his return. I baked bread and canned 7 qts. and put 3 qts. in stone jar, so 10 qts. pickles.
