{William Sunter frequently makes comments or summarizes his day in the right hand margin of the page. Some of our transcribers have indicated this by inserting {W.R.M.} meaning "written in the right margin".}

May Tuesday 21 1912 The rain of yesterday has continued to day almost without {cessation?}, and it has raised the river to great proportions, last night the rain prevailed nearly all night and this morning the iron bridge was down again, and worse than ever, because the wall on the south-end has all fallen this time, so the work of laying a temp-arary brdge, as they did yesterday, goes for nothing, it is rather discouraging, especially for {Geo. Robertson?} the blacksmith who has quite a large run of customers below the bridge, Harold went {up?} tothe farm this ev'g {took?} a ride over to the town line in the stage. Mary returned by the stage from Guelph to day. She went in yesterday by stage.
