The weather changed with great suddenness during the night and this morning it was blowing a gale from the North. I was out superintending the setting of trees almost all day but I found much inconvenience from a flying pain in my teeth which the cold increased. This will probably check the extent of my plantations this autumn.


My father took me out to show me his sowing four walnut trees at the corners of my lot. This might prove an inconvenience to me and a blemish in my general plan but who can resist so innocent a hobby in a father?

I finished the MS papers of my grandmother which is a great gratification as I shall not consider the Summer to have been entirely wasted. Evening at home. Talk with my father upon things in general.
