Ollie Rush. Fairmount, Ind. Jan. 1886.

I thought I would write a daybook. I went to school today, didn't get my lesson, and copied off of Linnie Overman's slate. At noon Maggie H. and Ollie M. and I went up to town, I got a scratch book, we had a nice time looking through a magnifying-glass and then went back to school. Janice Sathurn is my pardener. When school was out I came home, got pretty cold. After supper I got my lessons, and then went to bed.

Transcription Notes:
I found in another entry that the Overman Girl is called 'Linnie'. Last names difficult to read.
