Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

November SUNDAY 20 1887

Did not go out to church this morning the weather being stormy and disagreeable. Took Bertha & Mariam with me to the Meeting in Elliots school house this afternoon however. Thomas Bossfield preached a very good sermon about the sword of the spirit. The weather has become cold and like winter, with snow on the ground. Have felt like the weather which has appeared gloomy and dark. So my soul has felt been to day. But still faith says the Sun still shines beyond the clouds.

November MONDAY 19 1887

Have had the plough going on the Big Flat again to day. Lewis has nearly finished the Fall ploughing at last. I have been picking over apples to put away for winter and for other purposes. It takes a good deal of time however, to look after stock & c. The weather has continued cold with strong south west winds, flurries of snow comeing occasionaly. My Christian experience has become brighter than yesterday. The dark clouds are moveing slowly away.
