January TUESDAY 17 1893

Fred got up wood this forenoon as usual while I went to Jarvis to look after some matters of business. Had a note there for renewal of settlement, took the former latter course however as money is scarce these days. Fred and I have been sawing in the woods again. The weather continues to be cold, without any abatement
