George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 24 August 1786]

Thursday 24th. Mercury at 76 in the Morning—77 at Noon and 70 at Night.

Wind pretty fresh from the Northward all day with appearances of rain in the forenoon. In the afternoon there were slight showers, but scarcely more than would make the eves of the House run.

Mr. Shaw came down before dinner and stayed all night.

At home all day myself.
