Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

June TUESDAY 21 1887

Started to draw hay again this morning but a shower of rain came just in time to stop us. The boys have been drawing manure most of the time or until a little past noon when another shower stoped further work therein. Mrs John Murphy of Simcoe who has been visiting us since Friday last went home this evening. The rain to day has made the ground quite wet and even muddy but everything growing finely.

June WEDNESDAY 22 1887

Kept the manure waggons going most of the time to day. This afternoon however the hay became dry enough to draw so we got in two loads. I went out to Dover this evening partly to go to prayer meeting. Expected some to have brought our minister & his wife home with me to visit us over night; but was disappointed. They go to another circuit in a week from to day and another comes in their place. Hear very favourable accounts still of Bro. James Goodwin, our new minister.
