January FRIDAY 20 1893

Fred has been geting up wood to day. I went up to Vittoria to attend the Farmers Institute there, takeing my wife with me. We took dinner with Mrs Clarke and Miss Lamport at their boarding place and had a pleasant visit with them besides. Heard the Hon. Charles Drury talk about build drains, also about fattening cattle for the English market the whole was quite interesting

January SATURDAY 21 1893

Fred and I cut wood in the woods to day or rather this forenoon. This afternoon or evening I went out to Dover to look after some small matters there. Had to ask a favour of Bro J. Ellis, much against my feelings but did not have to ask in vain. The weather keeps cold, but, there are some indications of a warm change.
