I have five Polyphemus cocoons now. I found a cocoon last night but I don’t believe it is a P. cocoon though.
My school begins a week from today. How I dread it! I had a large worm go into the ground to day. We have not got a girl yet, I do wish one would come around. Clara is going away to school in a few weeks, will go to Granville Ohio I guess. Mr. Bachler, the man that went south with us, was here the other day — came before Papa was out of bed. Bessie has not been very well lately so I went up to see her Sat. afternoon. Aunt Sade has not got home yet because Mrs. Lewis is very sick.
I guess I will stop writing now and go and stretch some moths.
