Dame Prall a-washing for us today… This day we had a tempest of thunder, lightning, wind and rain, which began about 12:30 and continued until about 1:20 and then went off till about 6:10 when it came up again and continued till about 10 o’clock. I believe I may say it thundered with some short intervals between from about. 8:45 in the morning until 9:45 at night. Paid Dame Prall 12d for 2 days’ washing. Read part of Josephus’s Jewish Antiquities.
