April THURSDAY 28 1887

Were fortunate in geting ditches mostly cleaned in big field, also ballance of peas sown in hilly field. It has been raining heavily since noon and we have all had a good rest. Got about twenty acres of our seeding done. Thank God for he alone can prosper out labours and make them effective. I desire exceedingly to do all things as unto Him. "For none of us liveth to himself", He is willing to accept us and out little of ferming and O, how glad I am that He accepts me.

April FRIDAY 29 1887

On account of yesterdays rain we have had to suspend seeding opperations entirely. The rain will be a great benefir however in takeing out to frost and settling the ground besides starting seed already sown. Have had the boys at work at sundry jobs to day, This afternoon Wes. went up into Townsend after his pony. Thought that with him our other horses would have on occasional rest. They have had it pretty hard so far. The weather has been very windry and cold to day.
