Having had a considerable number of trees left on hand yesterday I have been arround and trying to sell those left. This was rather the delivery day in Port Dover, Have usualy had George Lemon with me at least part of the time, but this time have been alone all through. Occupied the Norfolk house barn and got along very well, except for the usual few.

May TUESDAY 7 1895

Have been out nearly all day to day delivering from place to place the orders not called for yesterday. Their number was not great but had to travel a long distance to dispose of them. Took Maggie with me for the sake of company which made it much more pleasant We drove more than a mile below Nanticoke just for one mans order and a small one at that.
