Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

October. MONDAY, 8th 1877.

Sabbath morning 7th inst. is a fine dry morning, but the grass was quite white at ½ past 6. This Monday morning is very wet, seems to be steady & with a heavy shower now and then & no outdoor work going on


This morning is better but still dropping of the roof, as if there had been rain during the night. The day turned out much better than could have been expected in the early part of the forenoon. The Sabbath School Convension of Ontario began this morning in the Norfolk Methodist Church about 200 having arrived, but they are flocking in by every train. Miss Alles Snider, a delegate took tea with us. We attended the meeting this evening of the Sabbath School Convension, which was filled to overflowing, & good speeches delivered


This is a dull looking morning after the rain during the night or early morning. The day continued very unsettled with showers in the afternoon and evening. We again attended the Convension this evening.
