November FRIDAY 18 1887

Our work is much as usual. Chores takeing up a good share of the time. The weather continues warm but as windy as ever. Have not had as bright an experience as usual of late. One reason, is I suppose, too great an anxiety about worldly matters and not enough about spiritual prosperity. Am so glad that these dark seasons do not last always. Thoubles do not last forenoon, the darkest day will pass away. Praise God O my soul.

November SATURDAY 19 1887

Lewis has been ploughing on the Big Flat as usual to day. I went out to Dover before noon takeing with me a lot of old iron-five hundred pounds which I sold to R. N. {Colver?} for fifty cents per hundred lbs, trade. Rain has fallen to day but moderately. Went down to Holcombs this evening, brought home three black hen turkeys and one gobbler for stock purposes. Was glad to hear that some of the friends below were soon comeing up.
