June SATURDAY 29 1895

I kept on cuting in the field back of the barn this forenoon, but this afternoon I had Jim at work with the horse-rake while I have been cocking up the hay. We will have some hay after all, but not much alsike. The latter is both short and scatering, though evidently well filled. Did not got through until late this evening.

June SUNDAY 30 1895

I went out to church this morning takeing my wife with me. The young man tried to preach to us on "Jesus wept" but I could scarely see that any points were made. I fear very much that this young man has been called to preach and yet he has put in his term of probation and is now going to college. My wife and mother went out to hear Bro Cookman this evening.
