July MONDAY 1 1895

I cut the remaining portion of the field back of the barn this forenoon. This afternoon I went out to Dover, takeing my wife and two children with me. There was a very large crowd of people gathered together there, it being Dominion Day. Was somewhat set back by a demand from F Kitchen through the clerk that the small ball. owing him be paid right away.

July TUESDAY 2 1895

We finished rakeing and cocking up the remaining portion of the field back of the barn this forenoon Jim & I went out to Port Dover to accompany a small fishing party out in the lake in honour of our minister & his family on the eve of their departure. It was got up by my friend W.J.Carpenter. We had a very pleasant time, althoug some of us got quite sea sick, from rough seaing.
