[Hosea Stout Diary] Tuesday Feb. 23rd 1847. Hard South wind blowing this morn.
Today there is a large feast made by the Bishops for those who are poor and have been unable to partake in the jollifications of the city hitherto.
The wind somehow backed round from the south to the South East and then commenced its opperation in good earnest untill late in the night. Every thing went off about as usual today. I was on guard a short time in the fore part of the evening.
