September THURSDAY 1 1887
Cleared up a grist of wheat this morning and took it to mill to day. Joe has continued to harrow on the hilly field, while Lewis has been cuting corn on the Big Flat. Have helped him myself part of the afternoon. We do not find the corn of any great value excepting for fodder, there being but a small crop of good corn. Settled up with Dan. Rose this forenoon-also Bob. McBride for work last Fall. We are likely to have rain soon I think, The ground is much in need of another rain-fall.
September FRIDAY 2 1887
Light showers of rain fell last night and until nearly noon to day. Got some seed wheat ready for sowing and this afternoon we have been working as usual. Wess and I have been cuting corn on the Big Flat while Joe has been harrowing and rolling on the hilly field. Our corn crop excepting as a fodder crop is indeed quite a failure. We have cleaned the ground in fine style however; and, in that respect it has been a great success.
