June 7, 1897

Monday June 7  A nice day & dry  I hoed morning glorys & done other odd jobs  my corn is all ready to plow but Harve is Still gone  the children brought word from School this Eve that his Mother died last night  She was very old & had been confined to her bed for 11 or 12 years  Crippled with Rhumetism  Mag & Bell came   Mag persuading me this morning to go to Marshaltown to GAR State Encampment but I am feeding 12 steers & don’t want to go away & leave no hand to see to things
