Courtland Olds Diary, 1887


Revision as of Nov 1, 2021, 2:20:26 AM, edited by


Did not go out to Church this mor-ning as we intended. The roads being somewhat drifted, and the side road particularly impassible. Have en-joyed this Sabbath at home very much how-ever. Went over to hear Mr. Burnham this evening. His dis-courses are good and much more interesting to me {? New} of our own minister. Bilieve him to be a man of deep piety, which is the most perfect of all preparations for a minister of Colonists Gospel.


The past has been all extremely stormy day; but, not so very cold. I went to Simcoe {?} to see about a note & to William {?} on the way. The side roads are still closed up, most of them, and to days storm has increase the difficulty. Have had Peter at work in the woodhouse spliting and cuting wood. Have been congratulating myself on my {return home?} last Saturday, that day having been comparartively fine.
