Henry went around stock in a.m. and we all took nap early p.m. as Will and I started to store and got stuck in mud in Carr’s pasture [last night] and not home until mid-night and went to store this morning. Rena, Helen, Seth, Edward, Charlotte and Clarence came this a.m. on way to the store and brought us onions, radish and lettuce.
