This is a fine bright morning, and the sun shone out finely, and made a pleasant change, how long it may last. I began to set up the old 8 day Mill office clock at Higinbothams which he bought at the sale for $1.00. Peter Idington & wife called after dinner for a short time, and left Town about 1/2 past 4. p.m. Peter Idington & wife were here, (I borrowed $20 from him) We are to have our meeting of the Worsley Trustees on the 5d Decr.

This morning is quite a change from yesterday, it is mild so far as to allow a drizzling rain to fall, and the atmosphere is dull, and looks like more rain. It however kept fair during the afternoon but about 1/2 past 5 it became dull & dark with frequent flashes of lightning and about 8 Oclock a heavy shower of rain and high wind from the N. West came on and lasted for about 1/2 an hour
