February 6, 1934: Delores Sell’s Dress and Bloomers

1934, February 6, Tuesday

Cold in night. Bright and in fact a beautiful afternoon. I laid down to rest and Isaac Afraid Of Bear and his wife Elsie Bad-Whirlwind came, also Tom, Bud Whiting brought the last of poles they got on Oak Creek last eve and Ralph Armbruster came along to get some slack coal to use in their shop. Carl Anderson came with a petition to get Tom Sazama on school-board. Ben Clausen came this a.m. and we had a time making out corn-hog papers. Will took him to John Wisenbergers to get a receipt for hog sold by Ben to John, but John not home so Will took Ben to store and came home and Ben stopped on way home in eve as Corn-Hog papers a fake. Maggie got meals and all the necessary work and in p.m. made or finished Delores Sell’s Dress and Bloomers. Fritz Van Epps hauled 2 loads hay from the hills and Will helped him put it in the barn. Fritz made out an order after supper. Will, Maggie and I played cards.
