August SUNDAY 28 1887

Have had a most blessed day. The precious word of Divine Grace & fillowship of saints has been so satisfying. O, these sweet precious God given Sabbaths how necessary are they, for the Christian and indeed for the unbeliever, though in a more worldly sense. Bro. Goodwin preached to us again this morning about Joshua's last battle, comparing it to those of the Christian. Went out again this evening, to hear a solemn discourse about dying. Praise God from {illegible} all blessings flwo, why not when we consider all his benefits.

August MONDAY 29 1887

The two men have been ploughing to day as usual. They have well nigh finished the field North of Drivebarn for which I am thankful. Have been on the road looking for a girl to help ma about the house. Have been graciously prospered in my way. Found a good, healthy strong girl willing to come in a fiew day, daughterof Mr Henry Williams of Lynn Valley. Am thankful to have the promise of a good girl for they have been so scarce of late. The weather is fast becomeing warm again.
