I had two dreams last night. I dreamed of having a terrible + battle with a rattle snake. He tried to bite me all over but did not seem to hurt me. After I awoke I again fell * asleep and dreamed that I had an orchard of several acres of Apple trees and I thought the ground was Covered with vary large red ripe Apples. I thought there were hundreds of Bushels so ripe that they must be used up in order to save them. I was making preperations to make them into Cider when I awoke.
