We want to go to Edgefield the
19th, but we are afraid to count
too strongly on going, because if it
rains constantly the roads will be
impassable, and if it is dry the
farmers will be using every avail
able horse to rush the plows. The
late spring and abundance of rain
has kept all the farmers from doing
any work so they are now behind
with farm work.
