Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

June TUESDAY 11 1895

I have been digging for a cistern to day, succeeded in geting the large Blue oil barrel in place to night. The weather still keeps warm and dry. There is some appearance of rain to night however. We were fortunate in having in having two new cows to day. Have been looking for them to come in this long time, but in vain. "The Lord is my helper." Glory to His name.

June WEDNESDAY 12 1895

Have been very buisily engaged at the cistern and contrary to my expectations it has taken until this evening to get it completed. Think however that my job is a rather permanent one. We seem likely to have rain soon there being every indication of it to night. Began feeding the two new calves tonight and had very good success with them, to start on.
