Memoranda 1

Halloweening Mask Guard

Ed and me, his bridegroom window was open so we threw rails into the house, put a rail in his bed carried a mattress in the back room, dumped his clothes from his dresser. We upset chairs and settee also. We placed the rails so that he would stumble over them when he came home and placed stones in his kitchen to stumble over and put a water bucket in the stove.

Ed and I took Lonís cultivator horse by the spring. We left a ransom note on his barn door. We dumped corn over , threw Paloís collar on the roof and carried his harrow double plow away. We turned his desk upside down. We carried his gate poles away and hid them in the grass. We fed Pal butterscotch paddies and he sure did like them.

Edwin and I Halloweening Bill Deverís. We got a couple little dolls and wrapped them in wash cloth and placed on Bills truck then soaped his windows we done other Halloweening.

Halloween party we played football and with Satin Jack bobbed for apples. We rolled peanuts on the floor. We had a sucker-sucking contest: sucking suckers the quickest won. We had Cider and doughnuts and pumpkin pie, an enjoyable evening was spent by all that was present.

Memoranda 2

The first time I saw Edwin was at a fight he fought Vernon as the name of Kid Lewis. Vernon had him all but knocked out. Then later Bill Devers was here selling the Alliance paper. Dad asked him if he knew any good fellows wanting a job he had. Ed Carter might want one but he lived at Rogers, Ohio so I wrote him a letter. He came up with 1lb of butter and said it was most impossible that he was working for his Grandpa. So when he was here he had that butter we liked it very much. He had me to write to him to bring some more up about three weeks later he came up with it.
