1923 Jan. 23rd Tuesday
A cold, strong south wind during night and all day to-day and cloudy most of day so looked like storm. Will fixed hog-house and brought over 5 sows from B’s and hauled corn over River. I was all in so couldn’t do scarcely a thing but sew a little and baked a cake. Will felt bad with a cold so was a little nervous.

Bright, chilly day. I got meals and cleaned our bed-room for Will went to get in horses & cattle from Roy’s and Dan’s corn field and when he got back he had a heart attack and chills so had to go to bed for the day. Wm chored and Kenneth went home in a.m. Mr. & Mrs. Elias Bechstel and Ada came to see about Auxiliary Statements. Wm and Kenneth got in at 12:30 a.m. for Mose Boyd, Curtis & Dutch Elshire brought them back in Elshire car and they went in Narve’s wagon.
