Friday 20th March 1846

“Fall of snow during the night which gave the Mall, St James’s Park, a very grand appearance, owing to the trees having, through the late mild weather, come out in full bloom – the snow sticking so thick to the leaves whereof.  Generally in winter the branches are bare, but this morning they looked like a hearse of white funeral feathers.  This day has been more similar to winter than any before this season, which caused a stir in the coal trade … we sold 76 tons.”
