Started for home. Met Simon where we had agreed. Went together and bought a suit of clothes a peace [sic]. We saw quite a fire at Haymarket square. Found the folks all well after a delightful time with Simon.

Blacksmithing again. On my cart. Got it done, then done several other jobs at the fire of course and then thought of home the rest of the time, for I go home tomorrow. Had a long chat with Frank Babcock.
Blacksmithing again. On my tip cart. Got it most done. There was a thunder shower tonight. I bought a pair of shoes tonight, too.
Blacksmithing again. On a tip cart. I guess I shall learn how to iron them before long. I played croquet in the eve then boroughed a glee book of Babcock. Been very warm today.
Blacksmithing again. On a pair of cart shafts for Mr. Turner. There is a temperance lecture tonight so there is no Lodge.
Blacksmithing. On Livering’s old covered wagon. A man came in the afternoon and I made a set of rocker plaits…. I got a nice little letter from Sara.
Attended Sunday School and service. After church I went down to Jessie’s and looked upon the lifeless body of his little sister. I then walked very slowly round town.
