Saturday, Aug 1, 1885 Drove out after breakfast with my father, Mary & Alice. Went to Eddyville crossed the bridge and came home by Fair view and Slights ferry. Recd. a letter from Fuller. Unable to come up this evening but wants me to send the picture to him at Monmouth beach. Went over to my studio after dinner and worked a little on the sky of the picture, a spot having shown itself. It began to hail after a little and all afternoon we have had a series of heavy thunder showers with grand effects in the South, the storms coming from the North. A building was struck by lightning and burned in the vicinity of Mr. Kellys across the river. Calvert came up this evening by a late train and Mantustocks foreman was here to meet him.
