                                and cloudy with some Fair, and Sharp Frosts, till 
Aprill 13, when Mr Consett saith the continual win-
ter frosts were thaw’d; and that on the 15th, they left off

to take further notice of it.
All May the Range of the Barometer was 
between 28 and 29 Inches; and for the most part 
above 29.50. This month had much more Fair than 
any of the preceding months, together with some 
cloudy with Showers, and some heavier rain.
In June the Range of the Barometer was (as 
in the last month) between 28 and 29 Inches, but

and many days fair to June 23, on which the 
Observations end.
