Continues dry and very pleasant. beautiful sunshine and warm through the day. cool at night, the frost is very hardsome of these nights. yesterday morning it was very hard. Willie attended Robt. McWilliams threshing this forenoon and Rich'd s afternoon. I looked after Johny Rafferty while he harrowed the remainder of the gtang plowing. he took the harrow home to Duffield's after dinner. Jeenie took Billie away driving  over to the Toltons. I cut other 2 rows of the corn, and I helped Johny Rafferty draw some water to the pigs and he helped me draw in the pumpkins about 60 of them big & little. there are between 40 & 50 usable ones, some a good size.

Rather dull to day. looks considerably like rain, although it kept dry all day. I took Willie's place at the threshing to day and Willie plowed in the field behind the orchard. I am anxious to get the plowing done, as Willie is giving up the place and I don't want to buy a team till nearer Spring. Rich'd McWillaims stuff turned well out. there is thought to be considerably over a thougsand bushels. there is a large proportion of it oats. it seems like all good stuff. Robert McWillaims has been helpign Johny to day to clean out the drain from his cellar. they duf it a foot lower than before and laid the tile and partly filled it in.
