Lukefahr School House

As this section has not been heard from in some time, will say that we are not dead yet; although we will have to get about in rubber boots for a few days, on account of the big rains we have had, the heaviest of the season.

Crops are about all gathered, except the sweet potatoes, and when we get them in we can sit back around our fire these cold winter evenings and eat hog and potatoes, war or no war.

A good many people are moving away to a better country (so they say). Well, may be so. But there will be a few of us left. So let's get together, brethren, and do our very best another year, and see if we cannot be not only better farmers but better men. And who knows, perhaps the fall will find us with smiling faces and good crops, and thankful hearts that we yet live in old Matagorda county.
