Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

May SATURDAY 4 1895

This being the day of our delivery in Simcoe, I remained with G.W. Lemon's over night, in order to be there this morning. Have had a tollerably good delivery to day, the great majority of the orders being paid by cash. Have had a pretty hard day of it altogether - there being a large number of orders to arrange for in different ways. At home to night in good time.

May SUNDAY 5 1895

Went out to church this morning and took Mr Awfords family partly with us for the first time. Had the young minister to preach to us, with rather more than usual acceptance. Had a good time waiting upon the Lord at the close of the preaching service in a fellow-ship meeting, this being the first Sunday in the month.
