Was a beautiful day, sun shone, no clouds and wind not too much. I got breakast and Will and Van Epps talked some for he came for a letter that they left last night for Billie, Elsie and W. D. came with some watermelons and staid until 11 p.m. for we just talked. Will and I took salt to Big Pasture, left 1 sack at windmill on Moore Creek. One tank had little water in it for pipe was filled with Moss. Will got it to flow. We stopped at Pierce’s for Bobby came to tell us that his Mother had a bridle for Harley so we took it to him, had dinner of fried chicken, gravy, potatoes, jell, bread, butter, cabbage salad, coffee. Lunch was cookies, cold cocoa, and coffee, also had cold-packed peaches for dinner. Will and I stopped at Abbotts in eve. He was fixing his hay-stacker at east-gate so we stopped awhile and Mrs. Delores, Billie and Cora Ann came with Plums they picked on Furrey-Whiting Land, so [they came] out to where we were and we went to [the] House and had fried pheasant, gravy, potatoes, Bread, rolls with Plum Butter in center, String Beans, Butter and Plum Butter for spread.
