Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

January MONDAY 2 1893

Fred has taken advantage of Hollowday privileges to day. He has done the chores however. Have been rather unwell with my back so as to be partialy laid up, myself. Have done some saw filing besides makeing and puting in an axe-handle &c. The weather has become cold just in time to make excellent sleighing for us. The rain yesterday was also a great benefit in providing us with water in abundance.

January TUESDAY 3 1893

We cut wood this afternoon Fred and I. While this forenoon he was geting up wood and I went to Jarvis. Called at Mr Parsons on the way and got our last cheese check for the last season. Had an offer from Mr Ivey of Ivey & Allen, to take up our Mortgage for us and to reduce the rate of interest to five and a half per ct. The weather has been very cold to day.
