Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

May SUNDAY 8 1887

Went out to church this morning, takeing Bertha with me. Our own minister officiated as usual. His sermon was quite instructive but somewhat marred as is toff to often the case with slang expressions. Can never become reconciled to such talk in the house of God. Had out several class-meetings divided up by themselves in different parts of the church for the first. My class took the N. East corner. Enjoyed the change very much. The confesion of the old way being largely obviated.

May MONDAY 9 1887

I have been at work at Mas flower garden most of the time to day. We are covering the beds with fine manure , which I have to being from the drive barn on the wheel-barrow. The boys have been working at seeding in the back fields again to day. Had a visit from our old boys Willie McWade and Harry Barret this afternoon and evening. George Lrmons came this evening and is staying over night with us. Have been working at our Delivery business to night.
