George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 8 April 1787]

Sunday 8th. Mercury at 46 in the Morning—58 at Noon and 56 at Night.

Wind Southerly, and Morning a little lowering—About 11 Ock. it began to rain moderately, and continued to do so 15 or 20 Minutes when it ceased and cleared. About Sun down a slight cloud arose in the So. Wt. quarter from whence proceeded a pretty heavy shower for a few minutes which seemed to discharge a good deal of rain for the time.

Mrs. Stuart and her daughters Betcy & Patcy Custis came here to dinner and stayed all Night.

At home all day.
