It rains dismally. We have had rain half the time since we came here. The barometer has fallen greatly and there is every appearance of a long rain. I painted on my camp picture but it was so wet I had to stop. Wrote to Pell and in a letter to Sara. A dog came into the camp while we were gone fishing and remains with us. He has a wound in his head as though he had been shot. The Leycesters sail for England today.
