October 13, 1909

Wednesday Oct 13  Cold & a NW wind  it begins to act & feel much like winter  I cut & piled my last plant of Sweet corn  I hauled 5 loads heaping wagon beds full of punkins mostly green & badly frost bit  it froze hard last night  I put about half the punkins the ripest in the Cellar  the green frost bit in the barn & will feed them to the Cows as fast as I can  Harvey Carr [1] came from Minnesota & is here to Stay to night  we have fire in the grate

[1]  Harvey Taylor Carr is Isaac’s oldest, and only, child from his first marriage to Elizabeth Taylor who was Margaret Taylor Carr’s older sister.
