Joe and Wes. have helped me in the hay to day instead of going to celebrate Dominion day, as many others have been I promised to give them a day at some other time however. Got in three more loads from the orchard this forenoon which makes fifteen in all so far. The weather continues to be very warm in the shade. Some appearance of rain in the north but, not here yet.
