Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

= SEPTEMBER 1888 =1893

3 4 Monday

Cool at night but hot and dry through the day. the Boys are from home -Willie helping Thom Webb to thresh. Johny has his Boy helping at the threshing while he himself is helping Robert McWilliams to draw in his oats. I drove over the colt to Erin this aftrnoon and showed him to Mr Ashley. he says the joint has received a severe sprain all through and, although there are clear indications of a spavin forming yet he would not al all advise to blister or fire the part - if any treatment should be made apply only cold water libatious and continue them as much and as long as possible. he also told me to get the heel of the shoe raised.

4 5 Tuesday

Weathere much as usual excepting that this evening the temperature fell quite perceptibly. likely thunder and rain has prevailed in some locality not very far distant. the Boys have been drawing in some oats to day. I drove down this evening and got the heels of Fred's shoes raised according to advice from Ashley. while at Everton I received a Telegram from Alex. Holyoke. telling me to meet him tomorrow noon at Guelph - we can not conjecture what is the cause of his coming so unexpectedly at this time.

5 6 Wednesday

Cool last night and this morning - I drove Johny's mare (Jeenie) to our buggie to Guelph, accompanied by Lizzie who is going to see Mrs Mutrie. as I am getting the front tires set and the 2 rattling spokes renewed I got off pretty early, leaving Lizzie at the Hospital. I was on hand at the Station at 12 oclock but Alex did not come on it, but sent a Telegram that he had failed to connect and to wait till 6.20 P.M. which I did and met him with his little Boy. he has brought him over to leave him here on account of domestic trouble. I bought 2 baskets plums #1.10. we arrived home after a pretty cool drive at about 9 oclock. I called up to see Mrs Mutrie who is, considering her hopeless condition, wonderfully cheerful and resigned.
