Terrible, hot sweltering. Many thunder showers. Lightening, about all night. I had 2 cans of string beans work and I made mustard pickles of them. Gave Bell a cupful for her dinner, also baked a cup of those big beans for her. Gave her a little pumpkin pie. Borrowed a cup of sugar off her and she brought us a nice mess of sweet corn for our supper. Cassie went down to the corner with the girls when they went to school, and got a bottle of *paregoric. Sidney sent from Fulton by mail. I stitched Mamie's dress and made Mora two little tea aprons, p.m.
