May 21st Tuesday

A big frost last night being the sixth one since this cold weather. Thermometer this morning & by papers this cold spell has extended over a large territory both east & west & much damage is done thereby in various places. There was an excursion over the Nickle Plate road for different points west to day but I felt as though my visit was hardly made out. This afternoon took a ride around Medina & then to Mr. Prudden’s & took tea. Carrie, Belle, Chauncey & I had a very pleasant visit. Sara Prudden is in quite poor health. Had to give up school teaching about Christmas. Still very cold for May.

May 18th Saturday

Another light frost last night. Quite pleasant this morning but grew colder towards night. Chauncey went to the office after dinner. Boys have 2 or 3 extra hands at work, 7 men 20 horses with cultivator, harrow, corn planter, & plows in motion so think they must be busy at work. Said George Bagby had left. This afternoon Carrie, Belle, Chauncey & I went to Medina then to Shelby Centre & called on Mrs. Zimmerman, a sister of Emma L’hommedieu Eldrid, whom I called on at Battle Creek. Had such a pleasant ride. Sent a letter to Mrs. Lillie & Mrs. J.A. West. Harvey just begun to plant corn to day & depends on the old fashioned way, with a hoe, rather a slow process our boys would think. Mr. & Herman Coan & Lucy Jane called & Belle went with them to Christian Endeavor which meets every Saturday eve at Cong church or brick church Millville
