George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 13 July 1785]

Wednesday 13th. Mercury at 72 in the Morning—76 at Noon and 78 at Night.

Morning calm & clear. Afternoon clear with the Wind from the Southward but not very fresh.

Transplanted the Spruce & Fir (or Hemlock) from the Boxes in which they were sent to me by General Lincoln to the Walks by the Garden Gates. The Spare one (Spruce) I placed in my Nursery, or Botanical Garden.
