Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

November TUESDAY 8 1887

Lewis has continued to plough in the ten-acre-field as usual. I went down to Jarvis this forenoon to settle up some accounts & c. Called at John Belbecks on the way and paid a note given last year for sawing. Have been picking over apples in the wood house this afternoon. Recieved a card from my old college chum W. H. Rowsom saying that he was in Dover and would like me to come and see him before Thursday next. The weather continues fine.

November WEDNESDAY 9 1887

My man has continued to plough in the ten-acre-field to day. Am thankful to say that he has finished this field. Have been being myself as usual at sundry jobs. This afternoon however I went to the mill at Port Dover with a grist of chop. Had to come home without it though. While in the village I took tea with my old college friend and room-mate W. H. Rowsom of Burlington Out He looks very much changed; but talks quite natural.
