George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 25 August 1785]

Thursday 25th. Mercury at 74 in the Morning—80 at Noon and 78 at Night.

Wind Southwardly in the forenoon, but not much of it. About Noon a Cloud arose in the West & promised rain but none fell here, but the Wind shifting to the Westward it blew hard for a few minutes & the cloud went above us.

Finished sowing the Spaces of the Guinea Grass in the little Garden.
