Thermometer at 90 in the shade. it
fell to [50?] in the afternoon.

We did not venture to Church; I could not
stand the heat. Slept all the morning, while
Garret read.
A singular black cloud came over at two oclock,
makeing the air. cool, and terminating in a heavy
rain. The change was very great, and we all
put on our flannels, and were still chilly.
Remsen would not go to bed, I was compelled
to whip him, to enforce my commands.
