Friday 23

We gathered 36 pails of sap to day; as the sun was out pretty bright and as it froze last night it ran very well. Ploughing was started today as the snow is all off the ground and the frost pretty well out of it; the crops were about in the ground by this time last year. Went up to B. Class and stayed in for service.
