Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

February SATURDAY 5 1887

Got A Peter started at drawing wood this forenoon. Had to make a road across the fields, the lane being drifted up. This afternoon I went out to Dover to take a crock of butter and to do some other errends, while Peter worked at the wood business. The weather continues cold and to night it looks like snow. There is much talk at present over elections also about the fisheries dispute which is now takeing place in the United States.

February SUNDAY 6 1887

On account of rain which has been falling all day nearly we did not get to church as we intended. Peter went away this morning however, and I have been a good part of the time looking after the stock. Have felt much blessed in reading a sermon of Dr. Machan's on the duties and priveleges of the christian. Surely we have a goodly heritage, in the precious promises of God. While I have entered into the rest of Perfect Love, I have also listened to the {illegible}less lies, and this grieves the great giver, of all good and perfect gifts
