September SATURDAY 3 1887

Lewis and I cut corn again to day, or rather this forenoon. This afternoon I went out to Dover to see about some small matters. Settled up with our girl Martin who has worked for us this Summer & paid her off as well. Brought Mifs Giles with me this evening. Drove down to James Holcomb this evening to hear from below. Mrs Holcomb had lately returned and brought word that all were well and some of them were talking of comeing up before long.

September SUNDAY 4 1887

Went out to meeting this morning as usual taking Bertha with me. Had a most excellent discourse from our dear Bro. Goodwin. He preached about Elisha's Request of Elijah, that a double portion of his spirit night rest upon him. Our fellowship meeting was also a precious season. Went out again this evening takeing Mifs Giles and Bertha with me. The sermon was about The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God. Am so thankful that our ministers discourses satisfu the soul. They are so fill of the precious gospel.
