== July MONDAY 25 1887 == I went out to Dover
was this morning to attend to some matters with the Bank requiring attention. Called at William Wattses on the way. The boys have been geting in barley all day while I have been cuting since I came home. Sent our first milk to the factory to day for the season. Have had a couple of calves dropped to day makeing nine cows in all so far. Settled up with Billy McPhee to day for work done in harvest.
== July TUESDAY 26 1887 ==
Finished cuting Barley in the field by Challands to day. The boys have also finished drawing all but the rakings. Our barley crop is very poor, being light in weight and somewhat colored. The dry, hot, weather still lasts, and people will soon be short of water soon sure enough. Have had two one more cow drop a calf es to day which will soon give us ten cows to milk. Have enjoyed much favour, with God, to day and yesterday He hears & answers my prayer
