To day it rained in perfect torrants, swelling the Elk Hart to its utmost capacity, and putting us in fear that the mill levy would again be washed away. towards evening however the wind hauled around to the North and the rain ceased. I concluded to tare down the old Machine shop, and commenced to remove the things out of it. Florence missed her fever, she has been for several days afflicted with the chills & fever which has greatly prostrated the dear little one, and I hope she may not have another attack of that horable disease. weather of course cloudy, and very cool.
