Susan Rice's diary entry for 27 August 1893

Continuing our series on the entries of Susan Hazel Rice about the coming storm in late August 1893:

The wind blew all night & is still blowing as I fear we may get the gale yet. My head aches too. We went to church in morn & was pleased with Lewis sermon from Luke 17-11 "And these are in the world". He is to preach again tonight if it does not storm. Mr W took dinner with us & it rained & blew so hard that he could not go to Port Royal. About 4 oclock the wind rose and at bed time it was a gale so he staid & a blessing he did for the tide was 2 ft deep in our lower story & plastering falling & rain beating in everything.
