Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

February FRIDAY 17 1893

Fred finished drawing wood that we had ready this forenoon. This afternoon we have been cuting in the woods again. I spent most of the forenoon in trying to collect money for bull services amongst the neighbours. Succeeded in geting a little over two dollars, besides geting the promise of five dollars for next week. A terrible east storm is raging tonight.

We have been cuting wood in the woods again to day as usual. The heavy wind storm of yesterday resulted in bringing a moderate snow fall last night and to day. Sleighing will of course be benefitted generally, and wheat as well as meadows protected further. Find by to days papers that wt binder twine duties are to be reduced one half Coal oil, will have a slight reduction.
