Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

January SATURDAY 14 1893

Owing to stormy weather Fred and I did not go to the woods this forenoon but threshed a couple of floorings of peas with the horses. Maggie and I went out to Dover this afternoon driving our Flora colt for the first time single to the cutter. I went down to see Mr John McCarty about threshing our cloverseed. The weather is very cold at present.
