Sunday, August 31st, 1862

To day we left our camp at Smith's and drove 18 miles and camped at Wm. Hallmarks. The roads were wretchedly bad. no incidents by the road side. weather cloudy & drizzling rain all day with a very hard rain at night. expenses 75 cts. Ther: 88°. Thus closes the notes for the month of August and as it also closes the summer I shall not keep notes of the stages of the Thermometer until next summer should God spare me to live so long.
