January FRIDAY 28 1887
We continued to work in the woods this forenoon, peter and I. This afternoon however, on account of rain we could only work under shelter, at sundry jobs. Feel much interested in our present election on account of the difference between the two candidates. The past record of Col. Tisdale being so bad as to render him entirely unfit in my opinion to go to Parliment. The other candidate is all right however & in every way, the peoples man.
January SATURDAY 29 1887
Peter and I got a couple of loads of oat straw into the horse-stables this forenoon. This afternoon we have been cuting wood in the woods again. The January thaw still continues with little appearance as yet of a change. Mailed a letter to Mrs Cook to day making enquities about a convention. The excitement about politicks keeps growing and will reach a climax on election day I suppose two of my neighbours came in to day and nothing else could be found to talk about.
