== June FRIDAY 3 1887 == A beautiful Summer shower was sent us this forenoon. Just what we needed to make things grow nicely. Joe got started at cultivating corn on the Big Flat this morning but owing to the rain he had to stop. Lewis went after a load of sand this forenoon, to finish the cellar under his house, which we would like to do before haying. Turned the cattle off from the field West of the woods to day. Have been pasturing for cloverseed. The clover being well eat off thought best to shut up for seed. {second page} == June SATURDAY 4 1887 == Have had Lewis drawing sand from the lake. He has brought three loads. Joe has been cultivating corn on the Flat. I have been planting where the crows have pulled out &c &c. Went out to Dover this evening to take ma and Bertha. Saw Mr. Varey about laying up the cellar wall under the little house. He has promised to come in a week or so. Thought of doing the job myself but, finaly concluded to get a mason. Was told that Rev. Mr Maitland was to be our minister.
