Tuesday 16th. Mercury at 35 in the Morning—55 at Noon and 52 at Night.
The forenoon a little lowering, but the afternoon clear and remarkably pleasant—little or no Wind all day.
Rid to the Plantations at the Ferry, French’s, Dogue run and Muddy hole—also to the Ditchers. The same kind of work going on as usual at all of them.
On my return home found Mr. Porter and Mr. Ingraham here, who dined and stayed all night.
Nathaniel Ingraham was a business partner of Thomas Porter of Alexandria.
