My wife and I went up to Simcoe this forenoon for different purposes. One was to see about geting seed peas to sow the ten-acre field. Found them at Mr Edmonds in Simcoe. Made a bargain for eighteen Bu at 80 cts. Made out a paper at Wells & Innes for a small additional loan to cover contingencies arrising from the transferr of our load from the Co to private parties.
