text: 5th. To Cheswezumi, fording the river and going up the hill - an excessively hot climb. I noticed a dwarf millet of which they tell me it is possible to get two crops a year, but do not do so on account of the difficulty, which I imagine is purely one of ideas not facts of arranging for two sowing and two reaping gennas in the year. A few litigants in the evening.
