McDonald is unable to work on the farm and has no business to attend to. He is finding idleness to be "irksome." He has finished writing about western pioneers and has no other subject to write about. He is pleased with the sermons and ministry of Rev. J.F. Wright. He is convinced that virtue is the passport to eternal life, independent of faith in particular dogmas. The Sons of Temperance in his region are not making much headway. Abstract Number - 1171
