Thursday, June 26, 1884 In the cherry business nearly all day. The two little boys came and picked for me. They picked about 65 quarts. I invited Girard & Mary & John & Nannie to tea which went off successfully and we had a pleasant social time. The rain cleared off in the night and today there has been a brisk wind from the North with a delightful temperature. I had a letter from Sara from Westernville. She was going to Janet Hubbards today and is to meet my father in Utica on Monday to come home, arriving here at 8 o'clock in the evening. I bruised my finger today and my hands are in a fearful condition, and I am tired tonight. The house is lonely again and a half sad feeling settles down upon it.
