June WEDNESDAY 1 1887

We have been very buisy to day doing sundry jobs. Got done with the pidgeon weed business this forenoon since which we have been fixing fence arround the field by McBrides where we have just turned the cattle this evening for the first. Our clover-field west of the woods has been completely mowed off and is allready to turn off for seed now. Have been finishing the fence on north end of lot and Joe has been geting the old rails home off of the road. Mr Henning came and requested it, so that road work could be done.

June THURSDAY 2 1887

A lovely rain fell this forenoon which was very much needed. The boys found work arround the barn though and I have been very buisy as well, at sundry jobs. Ma and I drove down to James Holcombs this evening to see Mrs. Horton who we expected to find there but were again disappointed, she had gone down to Mrs Clarkes a short time before. Have been seting out Cabbage plants to day, the ground being just right after the rain.
