May THURSDAY 26 1887

Our work on the roads has been continued to day. Completed our ten days, this evening. The weather has become suddenly cool with some appearance of frost. Fruit is so far advanced however, and I should think almost out of danger from an ordinary frost. Had a short visit from Mr {Sundagg?} this evening. He has become quite an enthusiast in Bee-keeping, and is making quite a success of it. Have been blessed with power in prayer of late. God hears me, & gives answers of peace.

May FRIDAY 27 1887

Am thankful to be able do record our completion of statute labour for another year. Am always glad when these duties requited by law are faithfuly performed. There has been some rain this afternoon which made it somewhat disagreeable working at times. Our work is now in a rather advanced state thank God. More so than for some years at this reason. We have a considerable extra work to do however which will keep us buisy, I am seen til haying.
