16 17 Friday

The weather continues fine. frosty at night and the roads are now in fine condition. Johny went to Guelph again to day with a load of wood. he tells me he got measured what he has in - six cords and a quarter - they are waiting for another season for the rest. the roads are very bare of snow near Guelph and makes very tough pulling for the horses. Willie took a load of wood to Abbotts and 9 bags grain to chop. I also after helping him load up, drove over to the Talbot neighborhood and canvassed some for the Smallhorn fund. the Mitchells would not give anything. got the promise of some from Johny Loree and Alton. I was glad to learn that the deed is made and all settled. it is conveyed in fee simple to the 4 trustees, myself, H. Hortop, Dan Talbot & Mr Woodyat. {in margin} Johny at Guelph to day. I have canvassed some for Smallhorn fund to day. & have learned the business is all done excepting to raise some more money -
