February SUNDAY 13 1887

Went out to church this morning and took Bertha with me. Had an excellent sermon from Bro Daniel Wooly of our Woodhouse appointment. Am pleased to sea him making such improvement in his preaching. Rev Charles Deacon p of Port Rowan preached in the evening, quite an interesting discourse about charity. Went to Sunday school this afternoon also & called afterwards to see Mr. Will who seems to need sympathy and attention at present.

February MONDAY 14 1887

RPeter and I have been geting home hay from the little barn this forenoon. Drawed three loads. He has been fetching home wood this afternoon, while I have been down to the Dog's Nest to attend a political meeting of Mr. Jackson's. The attendance was quite small. Only about thirty present. In other ways the meeting was quite satisfactory. Mr Alexander McAall was there as opponent. The weather is becomeing quite warm again.
