May SUNDAY 26 1895

Went out to church this morning as usual takeing my wife and Mildred with me. Bro. Awford's family also went out takeing Bertha and Jim with them in our democrat. Bro Cookman officiated for the last time before conference, and we do not expect to hear him only once more. We are very sorry to see him go away. His ministry has been so acceptable.

May MONDAY 27 1895

Have been working in the kitchen most of the time to day geting it partly ceiled up with thin pine lumber, instead of puting on plaster. My old friend G.W. Lemon came this evening, so I had to go to work at the Delivery papers at once. Have spent the evening at Home makeing very fair headway. Weather quite cool to night.
