Apr. 25th Thursday

Very warm & pleasant. Helped Cousin May & Mamie pick potatoes for planting as they seem to be more backward about making garden etc. than in Nebr. as are just making them here & we had made some time ago & planted gardens at home. It is beautiful here but need rain badly for oats etc. Chauncey, Cousin May & I went to town to mail a card to Aunt Mary Pickett that we would be there if nothing happened Tuesday morning & we drove around to the saw mill to see Mr. Weller as is at work there getting oak logs sawed into lumber & after a very pleasant ride returned about dinner time. We like the country here very much, is so (?) than through that part of Iowa we passed Tuesday. This afternoon Mr. Burch & Mrs. Weller went to take Mr. Weller back to the saw mill to work this afternoon while I improve the time writing a letter to the boys. They have a very pleasant home; keep a hired girl & 4 or 5 men. Cousin May rec’d a letter today from a neighbor of Uncle Buel’s saying Aunt Mary was very sick to I feel undecided about calling there.
