He talks of how nice Paris square is. Then he went to Bonham and his acquaintance Maddsey is becoming rich from being a butcher. He mentions Dodd City and they were going to start for home, but Una wasn't feeling well. They returned home and he mentions that his cotton is damaged by the drought. The corn has also been effected by the drought. Sam Doss was killed by the sheriff of Bonham. He talks about camp meetings taking place on their route, the little rain they received.
