1934 April 14th Saturday
Cloudy and chilly in a.m. but p.m. a little brighter but still chilly. I was all in from trip to Valentine so in a.m. I made out check to Indians on grazing permits and Will’s finger hurt so he helped me, then took the letter to Hidden Timber to mail and he came back before dinner as he played cards at store with Otto Rothley and Bud Whiting. Narvin Boyd came this a.m. and staid rest of the day and helped Will & Elmer put Will’s Saddle together for it came on the mail to-day from Miles City, Montana where Will sent it, to have a new horn put in, then they went to the barn [to] clean it and gave the stock a load of hay, then chored. After supper Narvin went to the store and then home and Elmer went to the Dance at Hall at Hidden Timber. Sophie got meals and mopped kitchen & Front-room, swept other floors and the dish-washing as usual. After I slept in p.m. I baked a cake and sent it to the lunch at dance by Elmer, also made butter and grape-jell and played solitaire in eve. Mr. & Mrs. Ray Bailey & son Alden stopped to see if Will would take Ben McKathnie cattle of Winner cattle to pasture.
