Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

February SUNDAY 19 1893

The worst storm of the season has been in progress to day. We went to our usual morning service in Port Dover notwithstanding and got home all right. Bro. Cookman preached to us and felt much encouraged by the service. He talked mostly about the privilege of Calling on God for the revival of His work with the sure & certain, hope of being heard & in due time answered in His own way.

February MONDAY 20 1893

We got to the usual work in the woods to day Fred and I. The day has been a very cold one and somewhat stormy. This was the coldest morning of the Winter 8 {symbol for degrees} below at about seven. The thermometer has only registered six heretofore. Have been feeling somewhat unwell of late owing, I think to too much high living or to eating too much. Suppose that by fasting would soon recover.
