Old Mission Mich Oct 1931
Dear Miss Taft
The weather is beautiful again. After so much rain.
The cisstern is nearly full. And the orchard was not washed any to amount to anything or the plowable ground either
But about ten shock's of corn stood in water at foot of hill
The road was completely washed out. We had to go up thru Mr Griffin's orchard But is fixed up know a lot wider and ditched on both sides.
But brush isent cut yet. Max hasent dug the beets or carrots yet.
He has been husking corn. has 97 bushel in crib so far and the piece up in the little orchard only half done. and other peice about 1/2 The little orchard has 45 bushel and feild by the woods 52.
Mr Roy Holmes is buying apples and is paying .25 cents per bushed just taking out the cinders. But don't know if he is going to take the later one or not.
Max say there isen't much [seeders?] up there at all.
Max took all the hay. Mr Richards diden't have any straw + none in sight. He said would have to have Mr Willibe find some.
May say its very good hay. And would it be all right with you to sell two ton to get some straw if he got the chance.
Max say he don't know of any one to help haul the hay except his brother which would help him for his board.
Max say he going to haul the hay just as soon as the corn is husk Beet + carrots dug
We havent had any frost yet.
Mr + Mrs Francis Lardie + Mr + Mrs Ruft + Mr Gene Russell is leave for Florida Oct 15
Am sending the check for the apples
Max got the check the day before your letter came. But the weight is right on check. The Reliegh man came and we got a bottle of that Colic + Bloat medicene which was a $1.25. Max owed Fay Dohm 2 dose
I guess that all the new's except the cow is coming up on the milk since all the rain. I suppose the grass has more juice.
Sincerly Max + Family
