== May SATURDAY 28 1887 == Have had the boys at work manuring and planting Southern sweet corn for cowfeed, at which I helped them this afternoon. Worked in the garden this forenoon. The weather has been quite cool but otherways very fine to day. Frost seems to have gone for this Spring. Never saw fruit more forward than at present, so early in Season. Am told this evening that my friend Mrs. Warren is much more ill than before She is scarcely expected to live from one day to another. She is prepared for the change I have no doubt. == May SUNDAY 29 1887 == Had an excellent discourse from our Bro Ellis this morning, the minister being away at conferance in St. Catherines. Did not have a very good time in the class-meeting afterwards. It fell to me to lead as usual. Our dear Sister Warren passed peacefuly away this morning, after an illness of over eighteen years. Did not hear particulars of her last moments on earth. Visited and prayed with Bro. S. McPherson this evening. He has been suffering for some time with disease & waits for his release. His feet are upon the Rock, thank God! & he is safe.
