The boys have been ploughing part of the time in the field North of drive-barn or rather Wes. has while Joe has been harrowing and rolling.

Finished ploughing our wheat ground to day. Do not remember the time when we for got done so early in the season. Have now some thirty five acres ready for sowing including the corn ground on Big Flat. Put one last load of clover seed into the barn also. The weather is now very fine and comfortable. It is fast becomeing dry again however. Have felt very thankful for the precious promises of My God to day. They seem to be so real & to comprehent so much.
