Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

November SATURDAY 12 1887

Went out to the Dover mill for a grist of chop this forenoon. Found the roads quite muddy. After dinner went to Mr. McQuades funeral. Did not get to the house in time to go with the procession however. Cannot help feeling for the family. The husband and father being gone. Mr. McQuade had many very good qualities. Have many pleasant remembrances of him in my own experience Lewis has been working away at the cellar wall again to day.

November SUNDAY 13 1887

Took Bertha with me this morning and drove out to church. Bro. Goodwin preached to us as usual. Enjoyed the service throughout. Felt that the Lord was with us to own and bless. Had a precious time in the class-meeting though I felt my weakness much. Nevertheless where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty, and out hungry souls are satisfied with the heavenly mannar. The broken body. and the shed blood O, the priceless gift of God.
