Four Pigs, a Funeral and a Bushel of Potatoes

“Helped Will Holmes butcher four pigs this forenoon.  Went to the funeral at C.H. Thomas’ at two o’clock and came home by town and sold our potatoes to Geo Lowe at .60¢ Per bu.  Warm and pleasant day and the snow is going very fast.”

I put this picture in because of the little stand that this woman is leaning against.  It is very similar to one that I have.  It must have been a common piece back then.
