George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 17 November 1786]

Friday 17th. Mercury at 38 in the Morning—44 at Noon and 45 at Night.

Cloudy with drops of rain now and then in the forenoon—more promising afterwards with the wind fresh from the Southward all day.

At home writing all day. Finished the ditch along the side of my Mill Meadow intended to conduct the water in common heights of the run.
