Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

April SATURDAY 30 1887

The ground has not dried off sufficiently for us to assure our seeding opperations as yet. Have had grass and sown on the field by the church to day the catch from last year not being sufficient to make a good sold. Thought best not to plough up to the field from fear of scarcety of pasture through the Summer. Ma and I went out to Dover this afternoon to get some necessaries also for some business with G. W. Lemon, Expect to help time deliver his fruit trees as soon as they come. Went to Francis Marrs for tea.

May SUNDAY 1 1887

Went out to out Quarterly meeting service to day, ma and I. Had a rather proffitable waiting upon the Lord in Wes house. Took dinner with Mids Giles and remained to the evening service. Our old boy Willie McWade was there. It was quite a surprise to see him after some three or four years absence. Instead of being a worldling he has become a Christian, and I understand a methodist. The Good Lord was with us in out Love feast to day. It was good for us to acknowledge the goodness of Got to each other.
