July SUNDAY 17 1887

Took Joe and Bertha with me this morning to church. Had a very delightful service. It was truely God's house and the gate of heavan to my soul. The Good Lord blessed me in the class meeting also, and unloosed my toungue to speak to His praise. Met Rausler Olds & his wife, my father cousin and mother friend. Had not seen him for thirty years. Went out to the evening service as usual and was much proffited in his {tening?} to the precious Word of God.

July MONDAY 18 1887

The boys and I got the East part of the bay in old barn floored over and underpinned this forenoon. This afternoon I have been repairing a waggon-rack for drawing wheat to morrow. Joe, and Wes have about finished geting out the manre except from below the drive barn. It has been quite cloudy to day and much cooler and more comfortable than yesterday. Am rejoicing in God my savious. My all and in all.
