text: Thurs. Nov. 2.
text: Some wind & slight rain early in the morning, clearing later. The Himalayas showed up well for a short time, until the valley clouds rose & obscured the view. Spent the day mostly in labelling & packing specimens, working up rough sketches etc. Had a walk round the track which encircles the hill on which the fort & bungalow stand. It rained heavily at night with thunder & lightning.
