Worked this forenoon at fixing fence accross the creek by McBrides with Jims help. This afternoon I have been digging a hole in the ground on the west side of our kitchen for a new cistern, the old one having given out entirely. The weather continues very warm and dry with but little appearance of rain. The Good Lord continues to comfort my poor soul with is presence.
