JANUARY SUNDAY 16 1887 Did not go out to Church this mor-ning as we intended. The roads being somewhat drifted, and the side road particularly impassible. Have en-joyed this Sabbath at home very much how-ever. Went over to hear Mr. Burnham this evening. His dis-courses are good and much more interesting to me {over?}, of our own minister. Believe him to be a man of deep piety, which is the most perfect of all preparations for a minister of {Colonists?} Gospel. JANUARY MONDAY 17 1887 The past has been all extremely stormy day; but, not so very cold. I went to Simcoe {notwithstanding?} to see about a note & to William {Name?} on the way. The side roads are still closed up, most of them, and to days storm has increase the difficulty. Have had Peter at work in the woodhouse spliting and cuting wood. Have been congratu-lating myself on {illegible} my return home last Saturday, that day having been comparartively fine.
