July MONDAY 11 1887

My men have been hoeing potatoes and corn to day. I have been helping this afternoon. This forenoon worked in the garden at hoeing & weeding. Had a number of visitors to day some from Dover, Among others Erie and {Lulie?} Stewart. Mrs Roses man was here their forenoon and got the record half. We have also had another heiffer come in since it was taken away. Cannot help thinking of father Leisk who was a member of my class for years. He was humble & consistent as a Christians.

July TUESDAY 12 1887

The men and I finished hoeing the corn to day. It took us until night to get done. Have got started at picking cherries for ma this evening. Our girl Mantie has become a source of almost constant annoyance to us. In fact a kind of a nuisance. She is disobedient, selfish and ugly and a hundred other things that are bad. She don't much more than earn her board and yet she wants a dollar a week. The warm weather still continues & is becomeing very dry.
