August 18, 1918

Sunday August 18 1918   This is getting to be a rainy time   it rained by times all last nite & now near 9 am is raining steady & bids fail to be a rainy day   I hope Roys place in Wayne co is getting some of it   I saved & tied 11 ears seed sweet corn   it cleared off about noon & we have enuf rain for this time   we attended Chantaugua [1] & heard poor music on a so called $35000,00 fiddle   he was in my Estimation a 85c fiddler   Ex Gov Shaw spoke 1 ½ hours   Easy to himself & instructive to the listners   a pleasnt afternoon   went again eve & left before it was one   poor foolish fiddling & singing equally poor
