Carl Gustaf Tessin

The Åkerö Diary (L 82:1:16)

 
The grain is, God be praised!, brought in safely.

September. Leckö, the 1st. Wednesday. After 2 days of sunshine begins our usual rain. They write from Åkerö that it has squalled there so incessantly that neither fruit nor vegetables can be expected, the fruit blown down, and the flower beds have flowed together ... The grain is, God be praised!, brought in safely.

Entry from 1762 from the "Åkerö Diary" kept by Carl Gustaf Tessin during the years of 1756-1767. Daily life at Åkerö is reflected in short bulletins, but the main content is memories of bygone, more active days.
