(See the gallery below for more photographs of automobiles damaged by the flood, to get an idea of what Mr. Schenck’s car might have looked like when he took it to the repair shop.)

“I went to School-house and mailed letter to Reuchlin; and, later, to Ellis Wright and Flora Glass. I slept an hour, afternoon. Saw Katharine. Andrews worked at his house. It is a bright day, windy.”
