This morning was the most marked by frost of any of the season as it hung from every light substance until noon.
This forenoon I count nearly lost to me, as I waited at the bridge to see Toyne until the mailman came along nearly noon.
Husked at Harve’s corn in the afternoon.
I see that I have no record of Sat. 15th. On that day I got the shotes (Shoats are young male pigs.) into the new house & in the afternoon went down to look over the bridge and the grading necessary to its completion.
While there, drew an order on Treas. $6.20.
A most disagreeable day as it rained all night last night and well into the forenoon today.
Toyne stopped in this morning to have us bid on the filling if the bridge abutment.
(The road surface needed to be brought up to the height of the approach to the bridge on both sides. We can see a considerable drop-off on the left in this picture.)
A most disagreeable spell of weather.
It rained quite hard last night, so I did not go to the field in the A.M.; picked a load in the afternoon.
It is raining now at 10 o’clock.
Yesterday I went to Churdan in the forenoon and picked a load of corn in the afternoon.
A slight rain which began last night and continued thro’ the forenoon kept me out of the cornfield, & in the afternoon I helped Harve haul hay.
I began husking today; corn is very poor and chaffy.
This evening I went to Scranton for the girls (picking up his sisters from the train), have just got back now, 12 o’clock.
A good day.
I took Abbie to the train today; she bound for Glenwood; came home and began to repair the box of the old wagon to begin cribbing corn.
Pa & Frank have been shingling the hoghouse.
Has been a very chilly day the wind has blown steadily all day from the South.
I went to Churdan today for shingles; brot out 3 thousand; also got glass for window.
Has been a good day, however holy.
I have spent most of the day on the pig-house and seem to have achieved very little.
This evening it rained a little, and the air is so mild as to seem like midsummer.
I heard a frog singing this evening.
Pd. Henry $18.65 Bal. due.
This has been a very dark day; the afternoon being quite rainy; a thin mist falling from the South East.
I picked a small jag (wagonload) of corn in the North field this forenoon; found it of very poor quality and small as well.
In the P.M. I worked on the pigpen.
A cool day with a slight frost this morning and a cold NWest wind blowing quite stiff all day.
This forenoon I helped Lafe (Lafayette Cochran) at the bridge.
(Pictured is the construction of the Cedar Creek Bridge, just on the North edge of the Bolton Farm, between sections 28 and 33, Cedar Township, Greene County.)
This afternoon have been framing the sills for the pig house.
In the evening we killed the first lamb.
The Co. Surveyor is here tonight intending to survey the road between Sections 27 & 28 tomorrow.
(The map is from 1905, three years later. The road to be surveyed still meanders, but more gradually, around the Casey (now Nugent) home.)
