March THURSDAY 3 1887

Went up to Wilkinsons this morning to see about our young cattle which we lately drove up to his stack. Found them all right. Peter has been working at the Woodhouse most of the day. I went up to the Grange Hall this afternoon to attend the regular monthly meeting. Attendence was small; but the business was attended to done. Came home by Wilkinsons where ma and I took tea. William was not at home; but, had a pleasant visit notwithstanding. Roads are geting muddy, freezing to night again.

March FRIDAY 4 1887

Peter and I worked this forenoon at cuting up drift-wood on the flats. This afteroon put a new door in the cow-stables &c. The weather is quite cold again; but, little prospect of Spring yet, although we see some difference in the length of the days. In looking along the creek to day I found that a couple of hundred rails had been carried away and a great many from my neighbouts above me James Challand and James McBride. H Feel thankful to have got off so well.
