July WEDNESDAY 13 1887

Mr. Alexander Man came this morning before I was up to get me to cut his wheat with the Binder. Went to see it and when I got back home found Billy McPhee here, So I had to stay at home and cut out own wheat as Billy wished me to do. Got the Binder ready this forenoon and this afternoon have been cuting wheat in the ten acre-field. Went out to Dover this evening for Bielys balice and to do some other small errands for ourselves.

July THURSDAY 14 1887

Got done cuting the ten-acre-field of wheat to day. Found it a much better crop than I acticepated. Have prepared to start cuting in the other field in the morning. Went out to Dover this evening takeing ma with me to attend the Raspberry festival in Erie Park. Saw Mr. Will and got to talking, also Mr & Mrs Aldersan & before I could get to the festival it was nearly out. The entertainment was quite a success however.
