== November THURSDAY 10 1887 == On account of the rain that fell last night and at times to day we have not been able to work out of doors to day. I have been sorting apples most of the time in the wood house while Lewis has been husking corn and geting the back portion of cow stables emptied of corn for occupation by cows & c. The rain has been just what was kneeded, The dry weather is effectualy broken for this season I hope. {second page} == November FRIDAY 11 1887 == Lewis has been ploughing on the Big Flat to day for the first. The weather has been very cold, windy and disagreeable. Have been picking over apples myself. Went down to James Holcombs this evening to see them about going down to Pelham to morrow. Ma being quite poorly with a cold we have thought best not to go to morrow. Learned to day of the death of an old acquaintaince & friend Mr. John McQuade. He died last night at five o'clock.
