October FRIDAY 7 1887

Sent Joe down to Jacksons to help Tomy in moving his old barn to day. Wes has been gathering apples. I went to Jacksons after dinner, and after helping them awhile, to complete their job Tomy and I went to the Cheese Factory and got a couple of porkers, one belonging to each of us and took them down to Jarvis. Recieved eleven dollars for mine or at the rate of four dollars and forty cents per hundred live weight. Had a disagreeable ride both down and back.
