Continus dry and hot although there are indications of rain. there is some going round in thunder clouds and we got a little of it. I drove Minnie down to see Dr. Dryden this afternoon. he says Minnie has improved - I got a letter from Ewart this evening. he says he likes the business so far, and the people also. I called to see Mary, who has been poorly for some days. She is still very sick and is in need of help but her Mother is quite poorly to day and yesterday - she has taken pills however and we have hopes they will help her. Minnie also being weakly. Maggie has her own time at home. Johny has taken in quite a lot of oats to day. also Robt. McWilliams. Willie was helping them and expected to get in his too. he got in 2 loads but the rain made them rather damp and they quit. sent away 2 dollars A.O.W.U. {in margin} some little rain.

Willie sold fall wheat to Henry Duffield -
