May TUESDAY 14 1895 Rain has been falling moderately most of the time to day. Our tree seting was compelled to lay over for another day as a consequence. The rain was much needed however and will do much good. The heavy frost frost of Sunday night last has done untold damage to garden truch. Do not think that anything else will be damaged. {second page} May WEDNESDAY 15 1895 Jim and I have been seting out plum trees in the orchard again to day. Succeeded in geting some forty more in the ground, leaving a small ballance for to-morrow. I have found on examination that the terrible freeze of Sunday night last has destroyed about all the plums and cherries for this year. Apples and pears are injured some and grapes a good deal. The latter may sprout out again.
