January FRIDAY 20 1893 Fred has been geting up wood to day. I went up to Vittoria to attend the Farmers Institute there, takeing my wife with me. We took dinner with Mrs Clarke and Miss Lamport at their boarding place and had a pleasant visit with them besides. Heard the Hon. Charles Drury talk about build drains, also about fattening cattle for the English market the whole was quite interesting {second page} January SATURDAY 21 1893 Fred and I cut wood in the woods to day or rather this forenoon. This afternoon or evening I went out to Dover to look after some small matters there. Had to ask a favour of Bro J. Ellis, much against my feelings but did not have to ask in vain. The weather keeps cold, but, there are some indications of a warm change.
