July 18, 1907

July 18.  Looks like rain this morning but don’t think it will rain.  Pulled weeds for pigs and hoed some.  Bell went down to Jesse Gardners to day.  Bought meat .15 and pineapple .25 to day.  Finished reading my second book on Lincoln’s life.  I think they are fine and will start the third book to day.  Got two cards from the folks to day.  Also got the letter from Aunt Emma Carr saying Uncle Sam died the 6th of Feb.[1]
