Awfully hot day. Sidney went about 9 a.m., he went to House's and got a tub for me to wash in so I would not have to throw away the soft water in our tub. I sent by Maud Cronan for a can of milk for Paul. The three girls took their dinner to school. A letter came for Sidney also one for me from Mina. I pickled a two qt. can of string beans.
