June 19th . I do not feel so well to day but I went and took Abba over to Uncle Frank’s. She was in a great strait to get there, I think. How I wish I was able to study but I don’t feel as though I could. 20th. Miss Conley came here to night. Mother & father went to Birmingham. 21st I started to go to the village with father but got caught in a shower & stopped to Mr. Spears till he came back. 22nd I have been at work at a variety of things. Am trying to get ready to go to Ypsi. Mother & Eva spent the day at Uncle Franks.
