May 18th Saturday

Another light frost last night. Quite pleasant this morning but grew colder towards night. Chauncey went to the office after dinner. Boys have 2 or 3 extra hands at work, 7 men 20 horses with cultivator, harrow, corn planter, & plows in motion so think they must be busy at work. Said George Bagby had left. This afternoon Carrie, Belle, Chauncey & I went to Medina then to Shelby Centre & called on Mrs. Zimmerman, a sister of Emma L’hommedieu Eldrid, whom I called on at Battle Creek. Had such a pleasant ride. Sent a letter to Mrs. Lillie & Mrs. J.A. West. Harvey just begun to plant corn to day & depends on the old fashioned way, with a hoe, rather a slow process our boys would think. Mr. & Herman Coan & Lucy Jane called & Belle went with them to Christian Endeavor which meets every Saturday eve at Cong church or brick church Millville
