Tremendous thunder-storm in London. The stream which rises in James Knight’s upper pond has failed all this summer, as it does all very dry summers; so that the channel is dry down to the middle of the short Lithe; from whence there is always water running ’till it joins the Well-head stream at little Dorton. This spring, which is at the bottom of the Church-litten-closes, seems to rise out of the hill on which the Church is built. Timothy begins to frequent the border under the fruit-wall for the sake of warmth.
