Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

June FRIDAY 21 1895

On account of rain this forenoon, or rather the appearance of rain, for it did not come after all, we did not go on the road as we intended. But this afternoon Jim and I got at it again, in good earnest. Mr Awfords have about done their share of the road work this year. Our rain was a very meager one after all but will be a great benefit to growing crops.

June SATURDAY 22 1895

It has taken Jim and I with one teem all the time to day to get in statute labour for this year. Am always relieved in my mind when this or even any other duty is performed Have been blessed in an unusual degree with the presence of my Father. The usual experience of the past has been mine today. His presence make my paradice & where He is is heaven.
