George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 19 January 1789]

Monday 19th. Thermometer at 32 in the Morning—37 at Noon and 40 at Night. Heavy lowering Morning and little Wind—drops of rain afterwards with the Wind at South and thawing.

Rid to the Plantations at the Ferry & Frenchs and to Dogue run and Muddy hole.

At Muddy hole, finding the top of the Snow to be sufficiently softened—I directed the Overseer to renew the sowing of grass Seeds on the Wheat.
