== July FRIDAY 15 1887 == Have been cuting wheat in the second field back of the barn to day. Got along nicely leaving only about four acres out of the eleven. The back part of the field was quite a poor crop while the South half was pretty good. The boys have been drawing out manure from the barn yard again to day. The weather has become very dry and continues as warm as ever Lewis has made rail fence arround his {cot?} to day. == July SATURDAY 16 1887 == The men have continued to draw manure to day. They have finished drawing from the barn yard and will soon complete the whole. I have been cuting the wheat with the Binder and finished after tea. A rain about noon prevented cuting until then. The weather has been exceedingly warm again to day. Ninety two Degrees in the shade at about noon. Recieved a cabinet of my friend Rev. H. P. Cutter this evening, which was a pleasant surprise.
