Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

June SATURDAY 15 1895

Jim and I worked in the garden this forenoon at hoeing corn. This afternoon I went out to Dover, mostly to see about geting a note in the hands of Bro. Montgomery in proper shape to satisfy the latter. We had tea for the last time with our Dear Bro Cookman and family. We are so sorry to see them go. Went down to see the harbour works this evening.

June SUNDAY 16 1895

We did not go out to church this morning as we intended doing our horses being rather disorganized for driving especially little Flora. Maggie and I went up to over to the Sunday School nearby and the remainder of the day have spent at home trying as best we could, to improve its precious moments. Bro Awford was over this evening and gave us the benefit of his company.
