June MONDAY 3 1895

I have been buisily engaged to day at manuring our grape vines and some young fruit trees arround the house. Got all through this evening and ready for something else to morrow. The thermometer has registered ninety four degrees of heat in the shade to day. The ground is geting rather dry and rain is much wanted. A protracted summer drought seems to be in order.

June TUESDAY 4 1895

I have been buisy geting up wood from the woods this afternoon with Jims help and part of the forenoon. Think that we have enough now to last us until Fall now excepting our threshing wood, which we purpose securing at once, so as to be in readiness when the time for useing it comes. There is much appearance of rain this evening and it is much needed.
