Sun. Jan. 19, 1913
Went to church and S.S. had 11 or 12 boys there. Called on one of my class Elmer West on the way home because he has had an operation. This P.M. I read and talked with Helen, then Ralph came and we started the book “How John Norton Kept his Xmas.” We read until church time then went to church my boys were waiting for us so I had five in a string beside me tonight. Ralph yelled “Christ” at one of them after church and you should have seen him run. We came home and I told him I would let him know after this when I went with another fellow I told him that I didn’t like Parker any more, and that he, Ralph, had arisen about 20% in my estimation for the grand way he acted the other night Then he came in and we read some more & talked.
