   'The weather was favourable for the corn and turnip crops, both of which are looking well; corn is in general a good crop; pastures lookig well; haymaking in full force, some good crops have been secured in fine condition; some days in the middle of the month very warm.'

His comments about individual days during the month included:     '29th July - A great storm of wind swept over this district.'
