It has set in to rain again after only part of a day sunshine. An enormous quantity of water has fallen during the week, which makes very much against farmers. Bill says the roads are so washed it will be impossible for me to attend Church tomorrow. I am very sorry to hear it. Bake packed her two trunks, nearly all day packing them. – – Nan assisted her. Bill and I sat in her room a short time with her. She read Mr. Shafer’s letter to us. Bill gave her advice relative to its contents. Pigeo finished braiding her apron. Nan still overcasting. She went with me down and assisted in making some excellent potato pies, enough for several days. All enjoyed very much.
