Hi, my name is Charles William Harvey and I am also a great great  grandson of Dr. John Green and I have a copy of  his Jounal. When I was just 10 years old I looked at it many times. I have my prints all over it. My grandfather, Charles Samuel Green, had it and lone it to a cousin and he never got it back. If you e-mail me I'll e-mail you a copy.  <harvey.c.w@myactv.net>  Charles    

The following is a typical entry from Dr. Green's diary.

"January 9, 1856- Last night was the coldest night there has been since February 5, 1836, very nigh 20 years. This morning at 6, the thermometer at 16 degrees below, in 1836 it fell to 15 degrees below, in January 1834 to 18 degrees below. This fall there was great conjecture about this winter. A good many predicted for a mild winter and the fall was very beautiful and moderate. This puts me in mind of 1812 and 1813. I recollect it well for it was the winter that Bonapart invaded Russia and in England it was very fine till near Christmas, but the snow began to fall on December 6 and was very hard winter throughout all Europe. The winter of 1813 and 1814 was hardest and longest winter I have ever known and it set in on St. Thomas Day, December 21, and never was a thaw till April 15, 1814. So if there would be any conjecturing or predicting what kind of winter, a mild fall oftener brings a hard winter than a rough fall. But there is no rule for conjecturing a winter. Tonight at 6, the thermometer at 4 degrees below and the ink freezing as I write and only seven feet from a large hot fire.
