Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

May FRIDAY 6 1887

I started from James Holcombs this morning at about eight o'clock to deliver notices. Got James to go Eastward while I went West. Finished delivering my share of the Notices about sun-down. Found that the trees had not been taken from the can and did what I could to have them taken over early in the morning. Had dinner with Bro. Daniel Wooley. Got home about ten and found everything all right so far as I could see. The weather continues warm and showery.

May SATURDAY 7 1887

Have been engaged at helping G. W. Lemon deliver fruit trees in Port Dover to day. Left home at about four o'clock this morning. Did not yet through with our days work until after nine o'clock this evening. Walked home when done. Had a fiew orders on hand but only three for four. Felt very tired after the job was over. The anxiety and care are considerable in connection with the matter. Enjoyed meeting with my old friends and acquaintances very much.
