May WEDNESDAY 29 1895

Mr Awford went up to Simcoe to day after some seed peas. He also took a grist to mill for himself and us. I sent a feiw bushells of wheat with him which he old for me at a dollar per bushell. This is the first dollar wheat we have sold for some years, and seems something like. I have been very buisily engaged in the kitchen geting it plastered and ceiled up to day.
