Joe and Lewis have been cuting thistles most of the time to day in the out field, North East corner. I went up to Simcoe to sell wool partly and partly after some flour & c. Had dinner at Jack Harris. Saw Mr. Horton in Simcoe. Expected to have had a call from him and Mrs. Horton this evening; but, have been disappointed. Sold wool to day at twenty cents cash and twenty five cents trade. Brought home five Hundred weight of flour from D. Roses Mill, two of which I took to Lewis.

We went out to church this morning as usual. Bro. Calvert preached to us both morning and evening. His sermon this morning was from the text "Our Father." & was quite interesting & proffitable. Had dinner with Mifs Giles and went to Sunday school afterwards. Out class meeting was a precious season also The Good Lord was with us in power. It has truely been a blessed day to us. Went to Mr Wills for tea and had much satisfaction in talking Mr. Will.
