Sidney reached home at 2 o'clock this morning, pretty tired, came about 5 miles beyond Williamstown after 5 p.m. yesterday. Commenced to rain just as he got in the house, kept steady at it the rest of the night and all day. Two little ducks drowned, got out in the rain. We had a pot pie of the little creeper. A. Russel came to borrow loaf of bread.
