A very fine day, although for a time it was rather threatning looking. the threshers were on hand early this morning and had the machine here on at work between 7 & 8 oclock. they had the machine here on Saturday night. I helped all day at the threshing, tramping and forking the straw. it kept them going till nearly dark and the stuff seem to turn out very well. some think there is about 250 bushels of oats in the corner of barn floor and all the granary bins full. there must be close on 700 bushels of grain with the wheat they threshed before.

Splendid weather for threshing. Albert finished up at Willies last night and he got a fair start at Johny's this morning. they had Johny's peas through about 10 oclock and they think there is about 125 bushels of them. Johny seemed to have plenty of hands on and I did not feel like spoiling for a job, so let them alone and fire away. I made the eve trough and barked it that we intend for the barn, above the drinking place in shed. John McKenzie called on his way home. he has decided to take Allan Ramsay's place at $240. I wrote a letter to night for Alex. McGregor, and one for Robt. Wood, with remmitance for 2 assmts, A.O.U.W. one for John McKenzie and one for self. I wrote a card to Allan Ramsay telling him that John will take his place.
