All day long, the boys have been digging stumps. They also fixed the well. They built an outhouse. The government farmer came over there and wrote all day long. They have also been burning the brushwood and stumps. They have been digging a pit. They have been pulling nails.  The old boards had a lot of nails in (them). At noon we ate. They raked all around the house/hall. At five o’clock we started back (home). They are about all finished working. Some (of them) worked today.
