Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

February SATURDAY 25 1893

Fred and I continued our work in the woods this forenoon and he this afternoon. I went out to Dover mostly to go to the Council takeing Mr James McBride with me. Succeeded in geting a little over six dollars for the fine ewe killed by doggs a month or so ago. Thought this to little, but have to be satisfied. Called to see an old friend L.G Morgan for some minutes. Weather still snowy and rather cold.

February SUNDAY 26 1893

This being my birthday, it fell to my lot to pass through quite an experience, at home even though it was Sunday. Went out to church as usual at the Port. The revivalist who is helping our minister in their revival meetings at Woodhouse was our preacher. His His name is Reekin. The sermon as about consecration, was good and to the point.
