Have put in a long busy day -- from
6:30 A. M. to 11 P. M. Opened up the
Canteen at 7. Had 50 men for
breakfast. Had word of a troop train
reported for 5:30 of 350 men. Went to
the Canteen at 3:30. We made
27 loaves of bread into sandwiches,
30 gallons of coffee. Didn't come
home for supper. The said
train arrived at 8:45. We had
several hundred other men besides.
About 600 in all. They cleaned
out the Canteen. Ate 30 pounds
of cookies & 3 boxes of apples.

Dusted the whole house to make
things presentable for Sunday.
Just at noon Katie phoned and
asked us all over there for dinner
and we went. Mother, Mary & I
went to the bank afterward. I
have $2500 for 4th liberty loan
bond. Lovely & warm out. So
walked until Mary got sleepy.
Read all evening.
