Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

June WEDNESDAY 19 1895

Have been exceedingly buisy to day, makeing and Ironing off a new waggon tongue. Got it done all right and a new stoneboat nearly completed as well. Am thankful off that while I was not able to get this jobs done in their propper time, four different reasons, an opportunity has come for geting them done before the very buisy season of haying and harvest.
