February FRIDAY 11 1887

We have had another heavy rain and almost another freshet following. It has been turning colder since noon however and now it is quite like Winter again. Peter and I could do but little this forenoon but this afternoon we have been working in the woods as usual. The ground is now covered again with ice and snow enough to make some sleighing. Am thankful to see the mud dried up again. Have felt happy in God to day. Complete in Him, In Him alone.

February SATURDAY 12 1887

Peter and I got home a load of hay from the little barn this forenoon besides doing some other work. This afternoon he has been drawing wood up to the house. I went down to the cheese factory meeting this afternoon. Had a very satisfactory explanation of matters all arround and consequently a successfull meeting. Cold weather still continues with every prospect of settled winter weather. Learned that Captain McFell is geting well.
