July 1899 - "As soon as I get the place paid for I am going to grow trees and berries along. Oh, garden some and go camping one half the time."
|"I don't like to get up early very well, much less to get 16 cows milked before I can see sunshine on the hilltops as I do now these cold mornings. ... I don't find it any fun milking cows these shabby mornings."|
