Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

September WEDNESDAY 21 1887

Wess. has been cleaning out the creek again to day and Joe has been husking corn as usual. Ma and I went out to Dover this morning on the invitation of Mrs Alderson, for an excursion on the lake. Did not go however, the wind blowing rather strong from the South west making the lake rough. Mr. Aldersons arrangements had been changed as well so as to prevent his returning to night. Had dinner at the Aldersons however and came home afterwards.

September THURSDAY 22 1887

Lewis and I have continu8ed to clean out the creek and did not get done until nearly night. Brought home our first load of cornstalks this evening however. Joe has continued to husk corn as usual. He has got a nice piece husked and ready for drawing off. The weather is turning much colder again, & to night it feels a good deal like winter. Have had not frpst to kill corn as yet, though.
