May THURSDAY 12 1887

Joe has been harrowing on the flat, when we intend to plant corn. Wes. has been finishing the new ground field with the smoothing harrow. I have been sowing grass seed on the same field before harrowing. The weather has been extremely warm again to day. Vegetation is advancing very rapidly for this time of year. We seldom have it so warm in may as it has been lately. Peach and cherry trees are in full bloom and look perfectly beautiful. The spring has spring been a delightful on so far.

May FRIDAY 18 1887

The boys have been working away on the corn-ground to day. Lewis and I run out to the furrows in the new ground field this morning, though. I have been geting planters home and other things in readiness for planting corn to morrow. Am very thankful to Almighty God for temporal blessing. Our spring work was never in a more backward state in early spring, and still we were never further along at this time of year. He has given me such good help.
