November WEDNESDAY 16 1887

Lewis has been working away at the cellar to day. and, I am happy to say he has finished at last. I have been away with apples to the cide mill which has taken all day. The roads were quite muddy, which made it heavy hugging for the horses. The weather continues very warm & like rain all the time. Our old friend G. W. Lemon is staying over night with us to night. His visits have not been very frequent of late.

November THURSDAY 17 1887

We left out ploughing for the forenoon and killed a pig for present use. This afternoon however Lewis has been ploughing again on the Big Flat. I have as usual been engaged at sundry jobs. The weather has been moderate but windy to day. Have completed the cellar and got the ground about the little house Leveled off which makes it look a great deal better. My experience continues. to be somewhat unsatisfactory and dark.
