May MONDAY 20 1895

I have been very busily engaged at sundry jobs to day mostly at fixing fence however. The weather keeps quite cool with nightly frosts which have so far been harmless excepting the disastrous one of Sunday night now a week ago. Noticed to day that much damage had been done to the young clover in streaks besides wheat also in places.
