George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 8 September 1785]

Thursday 8th. Thermometer at 64 in the Morning—68 at Noon and 68 at Night.

Calm clear and pleasant. Rid to my Plantations at Muddy hole and in the Neck. Found that at the first they had begun to sow Rye yesterday (as they had also done at the Ferry Plantation) and at the latter to day.

Doctr. Craik came here to Breakfast & crossed the river afterwards. Purdie went away.
