Friday, July 27, 1883 Went down town this forenoon and afterwards employed myself clearing up the road in front of the house. Mr Sawyer, my father and I measured the height of the W. S. Bridge. I from above while they from below. We found it 156 feet from the water at about high tide to the top of the ties on which the rails went. It has been warm today but cool in the shade and is still ideal weather. Bowyer came up tonight and he and Downing are going out to see Julia tomorrow. No news from Whittredge.
