Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

April SATURDAY 2 1887

Wes. Lewis has been away with his wife to get his little girl from his father-in-law to day. My new man or boy comenced work on his seven months to day. Am to give him twelve dollars per month. His name is Joe. Green - full bred Indian. Know him to be a good worker however. I went down to James Holcombs this evening, after geting chores done. His father was buried on Sunday last at a cemetery in crowland. Have been triming apple-trees myself to day.

April SUNDAY 3 1887

Ma and I went out to Dover this morning to church. It happened to be out Annual Mifsionary Sunday. The Rev. B. T. Austin composed the delegation and preached two excellent sermons which I enjoyed very much. This brother is at the head of the Alma Ladies college of St. Thomas and I am sure he is quite capeable of his position. Had our dinner at Mids Giles and, afterwards went to the Sabbath school. From the Sabbath school I called on Bro & Sister Montgomery.
