George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 2 August 1786]

Wednesday 2d. Mercury at 65 in the Morning—70 at Noon and 70 at N.

Much rain had fallen in the Night. The day was variable, but generally cloudy with fine rain about 10 or 11 Oclock which lasted more than an hour—after which the Sun came out but for a short duration.

Rid to Muddy hole, but proceeded no further as, at the time I was there the appearances of a wet day were greatest.
