Split wood. Took Alice over to Pa’s. In eve we went over to see Rollie’s magic lantern.
Editor's Note: Poor woman was exhausted by the honeymoon no doubt. Romance aside, I think it is lovely to see the little brother picking up the interests of the older. It was Allen who was the photographer first but Rollie who took it to an artistic level. I'm not sure Rollie's magic lantern show goes too far but for sure Allen's latest a few months.
