May SUNDAY 12 1895

Went out to Quarterly meeting in Port Dover, this morning, takeing my mother with me. Bro. Cookman officiated for the last time, as our pastor. This being his last year. Had a very good time, the Lord being with us and that to own and to bless. Had dinner with bro William Smith after service. Weather has become very cold, when we consider the very high temperature we have had so long.
