December THURSDAY 8 1887 Have continued to work at our stable for day as usual. Our progress seems very slow however. I went out to Dover this afternoon to get some necessaries also to take a crock of butter to Mrs. Moody. The crock contained seventeen & a half pounds of butter at 22 cts.The weather continues as warm as ever & seems like rain again. I find that the Commercial union movement is also being talked in the towns and valages as well as in New Country. {second page} December FRIDAY 9 1887 Our cow stable still hangs fire, and is likely to keep us for a good while yet. I had visitors today which has interfered some what with my own work. William Watts and wife with their two daughters took dinner with us and have spent the afternoon here. It keeps on warm as ever and again has every appearance of rain. Notice by to days paper that Commercial is is still progressing favourabley in discussion at least
