George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 6 December 1786]

Wednesday 6th. Mercury at 16 in the Morning—30 at Noon and 31 at Night.

Morning calm and foggy—Wind Southerly afterwards, and towards evening rather brisk. River froze quite across in the Morning, but broke before Noon by the Wind; and by Night the Ice remained on the flats only.

Writing in the forenoon prevented my riding out to day also.

Major Washington measured 41½ barrls. of Corn at Dogue run to day.
