Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]


30 31 Thursday

A fine harvest day. very cool at nights and heavy dews. the boys have hauled in a lot of oats, and Willie has cut our piece of grain. I didn't get time to shock it up excepting one round. I prepared the democrat for going off early to morrow morning with the excursionists and drove down to Everton for Mother who has been with Mary yesterday and to day. John McKenzie & Bella were here when we arrived home from Everton. Johny & Lizzie drove to Guelph this evening leaving here about seven oclock. they are away in to see how Mrs Mutrie is keeping.

31 September 1 Friday

Continues very fine harvest weather. I set up the stuff in our field to day. Willie was helping Robt. McWilliams to draw in and this afternoon came to help Willie to draw in 3 or 4 loads of mixed stuff. I helped them in the mow for Johny who, after helping others fixed up for finishing up cutting if possible at the Beaver Meadow. he hardly finished I think however. I got away about 6 oclock this evening with the span and democrat to meet the excurionists, taking Fred & John McKenzies horse. the latter for want of a hind shoe got so lame that I got a shoe on him at Hoskilns. met the Company about 8.30, highly delighted with their fine trip.

= Sept. 1 2 Saturday

Weather continues dry & hot. what is written as having transpired yesterday should have been credited for to day. and visa versa. yesterday morning I drove down our company to Rockwood. John McKenzie & wife, Bella McKenzie, our Maggie & Minnie. the train left about 6 A.M. I drove the colt and John McKenzies horse.

2 3 Sunday

Continues fine and as dry as ever. the girls drove the colt to Everton this forenoon. the lame hind leg of the colt seems not to be improving any as he limps considerably. I think I shall have him examined.
