== July SATURDAY 9 1887 == On account of rain this forenoon we worked inside, at grinding reaper knives and cradles scythes togather with sundry others such jobs. This afternoon Lewis took a small load of hay out to Mr. Alexander Ross, for me. He brought back a load of shingles for Perkis. Joe has been hoeing potatoes in the garden while have been weeding carrots and parsnips. The rain to day was a very moderate one and it still keeps warm. Have enjoyed in an unusual degree, communion with the Divine and Infinite this day. God is God, indeed. {second page} == July SUNDAY 10 1887 == Took Mantie and Bertha out with me to church this morning. Had a delightful service throughout.
