Cloudy, Rainy Weather
I have worked Milford Haven section today the same as February 2nd. It began to rain about the middle of the day and has continued ever since. The wind is to the East and blowing a pretty stiff breeze and the rain has poured most of the time since about six p.m.
I tried to comfort Mrs. Frank Dennis some this morning. She has a son in the Army and one at sea. I also tried to cheer Mrs. John Callis who has a son the age to go. I bought some fruit to take to take to Aunt Laura Diggs (colored) but it was raining so that I didn’t get there. Leone, Miss Sarah, Delorese and Carole Anne have been sick all day…Carole Anne has not been well for several days.

Cloudy, Rainy Weather
This morning I went to see Dr. Bowles. After making a urinalysis he found nothing wrong [with Carole Anne]. He gave me a prescription for Carole Anne; she, however, refuses to take the medicine and judging by the odor, I can’t say that I blame her. I then went to Quarterly Conference at Salem Church. Dr. R.M. White, Executive Secretary of the Virginia Conference Board of Christian Education preached this morning at eleven. This afternoon we had a business session with reports from the four churches on the charge. Miss Jarratt in charge of the Children’s Work from the above mentioned Board spoke briefly. The reports were excellent from the Church and the Sunday School as far as finances are concerned. The Sunday School reported $343.00 raised since December first.

This morning I worked around the County and delivered a check to Mrs. Wilson who has cashed in a policy. This afternoon I went over on Gwynn’s Island and on my way back stopped by to see Sue (Mrs. George Powell) She is still confined to her bed with arthritis and is mighty pitiful. I had prayer with her before I left.

I worked this morning and this afternoon. Ralph and I took our rifles and walked down Hurst Neck. I can’t really say that we were hunting because there wasn’t really anything to hunt for. After we came back I went to the Court House and had my hair cut and washed. I stopped for a few minutes to talk with Bennett Miles who came home this afternoon. This is his first leave since he joined the Naval Reserve and began training on February 13th. He has to be back Monday morning.

Clear, Cloudy then Rainy Weather
I went to Sunday School this morning. We had a fairly good attendance and after S.S. we had preaching service and communion.
We came home for lunch and then went to Mama’s. She came home from Newport News last night. She has been there taking treatments from Doctor Poindexter for sinus. It began raining just after supper.
