June THURSDAY 9 1887

The men have been hoeing corn on the big Flat to day. I have been shearing our fourteen Sheep. Found it as much like work as ever. In fact I want to could not have shorn another one without a great effor. My cousin Nora's husband A. G. Rose came to call on as this evening. He has Stoped on his wat from Chicago to New York, just for a day. He seems to have become tied of his continued seperation from his familar, & will soon be home to say.

June FRIDAY 10 1887

Have had Joe hoeing corn on the Big Flat while Lewis and I went out with a load of gravel to put under our church shed. Our bee was a success and a good job was done. We will not be liekly to see as much mud and water there in a long time as there was last Spring. Lewis and I brought home a load of stone from Sol Austins to night, for the cellar. Heard to day for certainty that Mr Goodwin from Waterford had been appointed to us by {Conference?}.
