Following a period of neglect I find some difficulty in recalling all of my movements of the last week.
Monday on record of last page.
Tuesday finished laying the tile in the A.M.; in the P.M. helped J. Kinnan at his threshing.
Helped Henry in the P.M. also helped at the same work on Thurs. 14.
Thurs. night brot a heavy rain and as I did not feel overly well, did not get organized until noon.
Spent a diligent afternoon at fencing or repairing the fence on the NE field.
The cattle spring the task by a raid on the corn.
Wm. Ritchie & I went to Churdan to complete the telephone line or to reset the poles & put on a cross arm.
Last night brot the heaviest electric storm of the season.
