May SUNDAY 19 1895

On account of rain last night and this forenoon we did not get out to church this forenoon as we intended doing. Maggie and I went out this evening however, there being a special song service in our church. Bro Cookman officiated. Was pleased to learn this evening that our request to have the circuit divided had been accomplished at the district meeting.

Have been very buisy to day with Jim's help drawing manure for the plum-trees just set out, and mulching them well. We succeeded in geting them all in good shape for growing thought it took us until night. Frank Marr and his Sister Bertha came this evening and are staying over night with us. There is some appearance of rain this evening.
