October SUNDAY 23 1887

Took Mifs Ida Skinner with us this morning to church in Dover. Had a proffitable waiting upon the Lord as usual. Tickets were renewed for the Nov Quarterly meeting. Rain began to fall before the morning service was over so we did not come home but, stayed at Bro. Goodwins for dinner. Went to Sabbath School and as it still continued to rain we remained to the evening service. Came home in the rain afterwards however.

October MONDAY 24 1887

We have been weorking away at one cellar to day with all our might. Wes. and Joe have both been helping. Our wall has grown until the South end is about complete. Building a cellar wall is a very slow process however. Went over to Reids for tea this evening ma and Mifs Ida Skinner being there Took the latter down to Holcombs afterwards to see about some small matters. The late storm has passed away and become a calm.
