May FRIDAY 24 1895

Have been buisy to day as usual. This forenoon at sundry jobs and this afternoon at shearing sheep. Bro Cookman & his wife came at about four o'clock and put a stop to my sheep shearing. We were glad to see them however, for this will be our last pastoral visit from Bro Cookman it may be for all time. This being the close of his last year.
