  • Notes 
    • Sun. Oct. 6 1912 Got up about 9 oclock - was a sunny fine day - had breakfast, milked - as I was ready to take cows out about 10 thirty oclock, my cousins from New hamburg, George Rush and Nathaniel Stear also a friend of theirs Elgin Eby very distant cousin of ours came down in the barn with their horse - I took cows out with the wheel -when I came back I asked the boys where their friend was - they told me that he went up town to visit his sister for the day up on Queen St. at Shantze's - both Elgin's parents are dead. I and the boys got some grapes after dinner, then went to the park boat riding - had some fun being rocked about by the swells from the gasoline launch, which Mr. Bush had in command - Otto Kern and a bunch of girls were on it - Samand Herb were here evenings - around 8 oclock as I was milking, the first time by electric light Nathaniel Stear and George Rush being with me. Elgin Eby came to drive home with the boys. We went in the house to play the phonograph again for awhile - then helped boys to get horse ready, bid them good-by. Got our horse ready and drove Frany home -got to bed around 11 oclock.1a
