Monday July 6, 1914
Very warm, looks like rain tonight. I got up at 4 a.m. so to get breakfast early to enable Sidney to get an early start. Started away at about five going to walk to Parish and get a train toward Sandy Creek. Mora pulled weeds at Weatherup's until noon and then came home faint and about sick on account of the severe heat. She eat dinner at home and seem'd much better after getting rested. Maud has been suffering with a sore toe, very much swollen and her foot also. Think it is stone bruise. I have kept a bread and milk poultice on it all p.m. Memphis and Cassie picked a few wild strawberries. Our hen went to Mallorys a.m. and Mora went and got her tonight. Mora took Lillian in her cart over town this eve. Cassie went too. Nine ducks hatched today.
