Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

July TUESDAY 5 1887

The rain last night stoped further work with the hay, for a time at least. Started Lewis ploughing in the field by McBrides, while Joe, and I have been cuting thistles and doing sundry other jobs. Ma and I went out to town this evening. Called at Mrs Lawsons for a few minutes and afterwards at Mr Barretts. Found that Harry was going to Brittish Collumbia soon, {illegible} on Friday next. Had a pleasant short visit with them.

July WEDNESDAY 6 1887

Lewis has continued to plough in the field by McBrides to day. Find that the ground is already geting hard and dry. Joe has finished going through the corn and potatoes in garden. I have been doing sundry jobs such as puting paris Green on the potatoes and doing in garden. Samantha Kitchen came to see us to day. She does not look well though. Is still living in {Louis?}.
