January MONDAY 30 1893

Have been cuting wood to day as usual Fred and I. The warm weather of yesterday has turned into cold already, and this afternoon snow has been falling in good earnest. Hamilton Olds came this evening and is staying over night with us. He is still {illegible}ing as agent for some farm implements and he came to repair a disc harrow that I bought of hime some time ago.

January TUESDAY 31 1893

Fred has worked in the woods to day, and I helped this afternoon. Had Hamilton Olds here this forenoon and helped him put some repairs on the disc Harrows which took some time. W Walls and wife were here this evening and one of the results was a very unpleasant experience with ma. It does seem strange that we cant get along without such.
