September TUESDAY 27 1887

Have been gathering king apples most of the time myself to day. Lewis and I Joe have been drawing home corn and corn stalks besides husking. Out old friend Mrs E. Ryerson came to see us this afternoon, after a long absence. She is now becomeing quite aged but is still of rigorous mind, and in good spirits notwithstanding her many troubles. George Lemon came to night to stay over night wit us. He has been away a long time also.

September WEDNESDAY 28 1887

The boys and I got in a couple of loads more of unhusked corn this forenoon. This afternoon we have been husking corn on the big Flat. The weather has been very warm and nice. Rain is much needed but still keeps off. Had dinner at uncle Johns with Mr Ryerson and ma who were also there. Gave Lemon a small order for peach trees this morning for spring delivery. Out crop of peaches was so good this season that we feel encouraged to plant out trees.
