Saturday 30th.

Morning cloudy and cold which ended towards evening in rain. This is very much needed every where and by no one more than by myself. I wrote a little while but was afterwards drawn away to the Wharf to catch Smelts. This is just about the commencement of the fine season and we caught abundance of them. But I found a head ach coming on which in fact disturbed me for the remainder of the day. By great care I prevented it’s becoming excessive, but it was still enough to prevent much progress in my undertaking. Retired early.
