the want of it. There were two or three showers, in the morning after which it cleared
up; but at about 5 in the afternoon, there arose some of the blackest Thunder clouds
that I ever saw. Mr. Ware, who read a dissertation after prayers could scarcely distinguish,
his own writing, it was so dark. There was no heavy thunder, but a very fine shower,
which lasted about an hour; in the evening it cleared up again.
