Di­ary of John Gra­ham Weir

1914 Nov. 16, Mon. Rain­ing less or more all day yes­ter­day. To­day was fair but a fear­fully high west wind. This forenoon I brought Mr W. Daw­son to heal a colt with a cut leg done by barbed wire on an old fallen fence on Mr Gra­ham's farm. 1914 Nov. 17, Tues. Bad storm from the west of wind and snow. The ground is frozen two inches deep. No plough­ing now. 1915 Nov. 16, Tues. To­day I went to the sale of farm stock at Mur­phy's farm near Lake­field. The ground was froze too hard to plow all day. All our stock are in the sta­ble tonight. 1916 Nov. 18, Sat. We were in town to­day and bought three geese and a tur­key and put them in Scott's cold stor­age for new year. The tur­key weighed nine­teen lbs., cost me four dol­lars and the three geese four dol­lars and fifty cents and we have twenty chick­ens in the cold stor­age. Very nice sleigh­ing, we used the cut­ter.
