Went to Brownsfield about middle of morning. Lovely ride – Everybody has had lots of rain. Ate lunch in Brownsfield and cleaned up. Carsey came for me at 6.  Went to Lubbock to “look around” and eat supper. Rode down to camp. Got there at 2 a.m.  Carsey is as grand as I’ve ever known him and seems to be glad I came.

Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today
