True August weather, damp in the morning warm at noon, and cool after sun-set. I took a short walk out with Julie, it was quite pleasant. Went around to Greenwich street, the old store, and purchased some towelling. They were suffering from the storm; kitchen full of water.
A bow from Dr Harson.
Some fine peaches came home to.day; that is to the eye. Went to bed my back ached sadly. Could not sit up. Louis hair cut, nine pence. Bridget beat the barber down three cents.
