June SATURDAY 1 1895

Went up to Simcoe this forenoon takeing our wool crop with us. Sold the latter at the Woolen Mills at 20 c per pound. Exchanged eight pounds of wood for four pounds of stocking yard untwisted. Had dinner with G.W. Lemons, & spent some time over our Delivery returns. Drove on to Wyecombe and got there at about five o'clock, finding the folks at home. The weather is very warm, even sultry just now.

We came home after sundown, the weather being very hot through the day; but pleasant and cool at night with moonlight.
