Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

July WEDNESDAY 3 1895

Got to work this morning at drawing in hay from the field back of our barn. Jim has been doing his first loading for me and is doing very well. Our hay is so very short and fine that we do not make much headway having only six small loads for our days work. The weather keeps very dry and warm in the daytime but rather cool at night. My mother had a quilting to day.

July THURSDAY 4 1895

I have been very buisy geting in hay from the field back of the barn to day. Jim has been my only help & he does first rate for a boy of his age. We got in five loads to day and six yesterday. They were very small ones however. The hay being so short as to render it impossible to get heavy loads on the waggon. It still keeps very warm and dry, very good haying weather.
