Saturday, June 16, 1888 I had a man cut out the tops of the trees on the side hill which had begun to obstruct the view. He got discouraged and found another man to help him who was a far more energetic man. It was a very hot day and the work very hard. I paid him $3.25 and he settled with his man. Marion came by the Powell. Mr. Wortman sent me a paper on Gifford he had written for some newspaper.
