At the back of the 1882 journal there are four pages titled "Notes of Mr. Morton's sermon preached Sabbath 20th of July 1884". Rev. J.F. Morton was the minister at the Reformed Presbyterian church in Cedarville from 1863 until his death in 1903. (See the supplemental content above)

Pages 115 and 116 have been removed from this journal. However, it appears as though Martha removed those pages as soon as she wrote them, since page 117 continues from where she left off on page 114.

The images in the PDF and the interactive book (the Read Online button to the left) were resized to compile more manageable documents. Even so, the PDFs are large files and therefore may take some time to download. For quicker viewing, click the Read Online button. Please contact the administrator if you would like to have a copy of any of the higher quality original images.
