JANUARY SUNDAY 16 1887

Did not go out to Church this morning as we intended. The roads being somewhat drifted, and the side road particularly impassible. Have en-joyed this Sabbath at home very much how-ever. Went over to hear Mr. Burnham this evening. His discourses are good and much more interesting to me than of our own minister. Believe him to be a man of deep piety, which is the most perfect of all preparations for a minister of Christs Gospel.

The side roads are still closed up, most of them, and to days storm has increase the difficulty. Have had Peter at work in the woodhouse spliting and cuting wood. Have been congratulating myself on hav my return home last Saturday, that day having been comparartively fine.
