Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

February TUESDAY 7 1893

Maggie and I with our little daugher are visiting at Fergusons or my father-in-laws to day. Had intended returning home this evening but owing to the weather concluded at last to stay over another night and return to morrow. We were glad to find the old folks well and in good spirits. They have Charley Crysler with them yet and he seems determined to stay with them

February WEDNESDAY 8 1893

The cold weather is still prevailing but, we had the wind on our backs to day as we came home from Mr Ferguson's at Wyecombe. Stoped in Simcoe at Florences for an hour or so on the way home. Felt thankful to find everything all right at home notwithstanding the flood of ice that covers the ground almost everywhere. Great ponds of water stand on some fields the result of Mondays rain.
