August 18, 1920
Boyd County, Nebraska
Was misty, showery and cloudy and windy all day. Will went to Gallentines to thresh and stayed all day but engine broke so didn’t thresh until evening. Gallentines threshed oats when the engine was fixed, but help was gone then. I baked Bread and ironed clothes and went to Gallentines at noon with sugar and in evening on way for water at Bradstreets. Was a misty evening and cold at times and again so close. C. E. B. [Chicken Eater Big] sow laid on 5 pigs so 4 are left and Maggie’s 9 are fine.
