Went to Artesia with Bernard. Took Erwin Marsh, Mary V. Burdette, Jack Deason and Peggy Marston. Had a nice candle light service. Bernard and I visited with Shigarts until almost 6. Had tea. Mr. S offered Bernard $250.00 for working with him! Sounds good to me – After I got home I played for Mr. Marten to sing at a Mexican meeting at Senior High.
