Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

February SATURDAY 11 1893

Fred finished cleaning up the Cloverseed this forenoon. There was only about two bushels from the eight acre field back of the barn. The smallest crop of cloverseed that I remember ever cuting, especially of pastured seed. Fred went up to Townsend this afternoon on business of his own. I have been working during the day at sundry jobs. The weather is quite mild again.

The past has been a beautiful day. We have not see the like for a long time. Went out to Dover for church takeing ma and Bertha with me. Our young minister preached to the children but, of course his sermon was all right for older people. The yearly Township Sabbath School convention takes place to morrow in Port Dover and to day services were preparatory.
