Clouds .50. 9. N.W. 8. Clouds .10. Saw two splendid bird waders in a shallow. They were more than half crimson. 10. N.W. 8. Clouds .10. 11. N.W. 8. Clouds .05. 12. N.W. 6. Clouds .05. 13. N.W. 15.

Rain 2 hrs. cool. 17. S.E. 10. Clouds .75. Rain 3 hrs. 18. S.E. 10. Clouds .50. Rain 2 hrs. and in night. 19. N.W. 10. Clouds .25. Cool. 20. N.W. 15. Clouds .25. Scattering of hail, cool. 21.

The light of the whole sky of plant suns has faded. The glory has departed, but another glory has come, scarcely less obvious to those who look and wait for it. 25. N.W. 15. Clouds .05. Warm. Plains colored dim purple and gray and yellow, with faint fading patches of green. The purple is from the stems of comps. and cresses, and the bare soil. The gray is from a species of Gnaphalium and withered corollas of other comps., and the second scale-corollas of comps. The yellow is from grass stems and a few lingering flowers. 26. N.W. 15.
