Much cooler. Yesterday overcast & cool all day, with occasional sharp showers. Violent wind & storms of rain in the night. Fire last night & this morning, not absolutely necessary but acceptable.
The brown goat, besides being very difficult to milk, gives little or nothing. Perhaps she is really going off preparatory to kidding, in which case she would probably kid in some weeks’ time.
The pigeons this morning of their own accord went into the pigeon-house in which we put them for our first day here. They are now very tame.
Goats eat boiled wheat & maize readily.
