Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

March MONDAY 21 1887

Peter and I went up to W. WIlkinsons this afternoon to put the remains of the latter's straw stack into the barn. He promising to feed it out if I would take care of it. My young cattle are doing well there & we find that our feed is going a good deal farther by having these seven head away. Gave little Mabel Rose a young lamb to raise to day, also one to out Bertha. Our new man has come with his wife and are occupying the house to night for the first. The weather is geting quite moderate.

March TUESDAY 22 1887

Have been drawing hay from the little barn in the Woods this forenoon, Peter and I. This afternoon We have been up to W. Wilkinsons geting the ballance of his straw-stack into the barn. Helped him put the a load of hay on his waggon in the meantime. The weather continues quite disagreeable and cold, with an occasional fall of snow, very light ones however. I notice by late papers that Reciprocity between the United States and Canada is likely to be an important question of the near future.
