29th June 1813

For four days past the weather has been very warm and sultry.  The Thermometer in the Shade was generally from 70 to 75 and vegetation is beginning to suffer severely by it, the wind being generally at East.

A shower from the eastward which has cooled the air very much.  The Markets this month are very high. Beef from 8 to 10d per lib.  Butter 1/6 to 1/8.  Oatmeal £3.10 per Load and other articles in proportion.  The rate of postage of Letters is also Augmented.  A Letter from London is ½.  One from Edinburgh is 7½d.
