Snow Storm

American Friend, February 6, 1818

Our paper, this week, we are obliged make out of any-thing; from the frequent failures in the Eastern Mail we cannot depend upon it.  For the failure on Wednesday last, however, there is a reasonable excuse, from the great depth of snow, which covers the ground and renders travelling almost impossible.

The latest papers from Washington are of the 22 and 24 ult.  congress at that time was employed as usual doing very little business of importance.

Snow Storm

On Monday night last, and the day and night following, we experienced a greater fall of snow than can be recollected by our inhabitants since the first settlement of this country.  It continued snowing, without intermission, about thirty hours, and when it stopped, it measured two feet deep on a level.
