June THURSDAY 13 1895

Finished cleaning up after digging our new cistern this forenoon This afternoon have been working at repairing the horse-rake preparitory to starting haying, which Mr Awford propose to do to morrow. They are begining this early in order to try to get some cloverseed from the field. The crop is a very light one, so light indeed that we fear being able to gather it with the horse rake.
