== September WEDNESDAY 7 1887 == The boys have been drawing and spreading manure on the hill east of the house to day, most of the time. Have been engaged at sundry jobs myself most of the time. Cannot help being deeply impressed with the loss we have sustained in our Bro. who died yesterday. It seems a great personal loss to me, & what will we do without him in the church & I cannot go out to Dover for a long time without thinking of Bro {Rossis?} many kindnesses to me, in so many ways. == September THURSDAY 8 1887 == My men and teams have continued to work on the field by McBrides geting it ready to sow. I went out to Dover this afternoon to attend the funeral of my friend and Bro Alexander Ross, where I acted as Fall Berren. A large number of people were there. Heard when on the road home of the death of Bro. {Renslayer?} Olds, very suddenly on Monday last in the township of Burford. Heart disease was supposed to be the cause. Went to a social this evening in James Holcombs church. A goodly number present. Proceeds 50$
