George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 24 January 1786]

Tuesday 24th. Thermometer at 31 in the Morning—36 at Noon and 34 at Night.

Morning clear & pleasant: Lowering afterwards; with appearances of Snow—little or no Wind all day.

Began my work of Ice-getting again to day but it was not in a proper State being rather a mixture of Snow & Ice and not hard enough.
