Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

December FRIDAY 16 1887

Lewis and I have been at our old job - fixing a new cowstable. Am thankfull that we are makeing some headway though not done as yet. Hope to get nearly done to morrow. The warm weather of yesterday has become cold again. Have heard some painful news of our dear friend Mrs D.W. Horton. She is very ill from a fall and may never recover. It seems that three of her ribs were broken some months ago and have never been set since.

December SATURDAY 17 1887

Our job has continued to be last to day and is not even yet done. Am thankfull however that we have got our young cattle up at for the first The seem to enjoy their new stable immensely. The weather has been quite mild again to day, but to night it is snowing. There does not seem to be any indication of a heavy fall of snow however. The past week has been a very buisy one. Am glad that the precious Sabbath is at hand.
