June WEDNESDAY 29 1887

The boys have been cultivating corn on the big flat this forenoon. This afternoon they have been rakeing and puting hay in the orchard, where we have quite a crop. Went ip to Waterfore this forenoon after a load of moveables for our Minister Bro. Jas. Goodwin who comes to us from Waterford. The roads were good but the weather has been extremely warm, dry and the roadsquite dusty. Got to Dover all right at about seven P. M.

June THURSDAY 30 1887

Got in four loads of hay this forenoon from the front field and orchard. These make twelve loads of hay only drawn so far. The yield is much less than last year. In fact I do not remember having a lighter crop. Have been cuting in our last field, this afternoon the field back of the barn. The weather has been very hot and dry to day. Thermometer about ninety in the shade. Warmer than before this season.
