Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

February THURSDAY 3 1887

We continued to work in the woods this forenoon as usual. I went up to the Grange this afternoon Had quite an interesting meeting with a good turn out. Officers were installed to day. They have changed me from being Secretary to the Stewards office. Feel quite relieved in geting out of the resposibilities of this business. Ma and I spent the evening at unckle John Mattews to night. We always enjoy visiting there. Nora has promised to go with me to Pelham soon.

February FRIDAY 4 1887

Peter and I continued to cut wood this forenoon in the woods as usual. Sent him with the teem to draw stone for the new schoolhouse this afternoon. There being a bee for that purpose I went down to William Wattses to take a freight notice with refference to sugar, at the station for him. Called at Captain McFells on the way home. Found him still on the ment, though slowly, He seems to suffer a good deal from weakness and pain.
