January SUNDAY 30 1887

For the first time in a good while we all. Ma, Bertha and I, went out to church this morning. Had an interesting discourse from our own minister, and a very good fellowship meeting, with Distribution of tickets. Had dinner with Mids Giles and tea also. Attended sunday school and choir practice. Remained to the evening service. Made some calls in a sort of pastoral way after Sunday School. Trouble has arisen between some of our members & the minister; and, I have been trying to make peace.

January MONDAY 31 1887

The weather changed very suddenly yesterday and has been geting colder ever since. Throw has fallen to day, in sufficient quantities to make sleighing notwithstanding the cold. Peter and I have been working in the woods as usual. We are geting the dead and down timber nearly all cut up in both woods and consquently will son have to cut down grew tinmber. Am more than ever persuaded that it would pay for us to but our coal stone in our house.
