October WEDNESDAY 19 1887

Ma and I went up to Simcoe this forenoon to the Ag. Show. The day has been exceedingly fine & warm. A large crowd of people were in attendance and the exhibits were fully up to any other year. We went first to George Lemons and had dinner. Was informed of the unexpected death yesterday of the Rev S. S. Nelles, who was for over thirty years president of Victoria Univeristy and one of my own tutors for a time.
