                                And now having mention’d the highest Range,
I shall take notice of the lowest, which was on Jan
21: at 28.36, Wind West 4 and Snow.
In January 1724-5, the Barometer was above 
30 Inches all the begining of the month till the 18th,
and then it gradually fell to 28.36, as I said. The 
Winds, for the most part, were in some westerly point,
till Jan:11; and then SE2, with Fair, and a hard 
Frost, for a week; the weather before the 11th being 
cloudy and moist, with some Snow now and then,
and a little Rain on Jan:1. All the rest of January 
was, for the most part, cloudy with Snow, and 
but little Fair, and that attended with Frost.
In February the Barometer continued high,
untill by a gradual Descent, it came to 28.98, on 
Feb: 15 and 17, Wind Westerly 3 and 4. Likewise on 
Feb: 25 it fell to 28.28, Wind W4. The greatest 
part of this month the Weather was cloudy, some 
times with thick darkness, frequent Snow, and now 
and then Fair, with sharp Frost.
All March the Barometer was above 29 inches,
sometimes above 30. The greatest part of the month 
was cloudy, with frequent Snow, and some Fair with 
sharp Frosts. The Winds were variable, and their 
Strength about one and two degrees all the month, and 
seldom at three degrees, nor calm at any time.
All Aprill the Barometer was above 29 Inches,
and under 30. In the begining of the month, Snow 
and
