Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

June TUESDAY 25 1895

I have continued to work at fence - building and repairing until the middle of this afternoon, arround the new ground field - Mr Awford & John helping. Went to the blacksmith shop this afternoon to get repairs on the buggy &c. There still seems to be every appearance of rain but still it does not come. Am still in the enjoyment of a precious sense of acceptance with the Divine and Infinite.

June WEDNESDAY 26 1895

Got started this afternoon at cuting the field back of the barn where we expected to have had Alsike, but owing to the peculiar seasons, last year and this, I do not think it worth cuting for seed, and scarcely worth cuting for hay, but as hay is going to be very scarce owing to the frost & dry weather it seems necessary to save all we can, even the poorest.
