'Looking in almost the opposite direction of No 80. On the extreme left about 30 feet beyond the bridge stands the old flour mill. The door, like that of all the mills we saw is out in two in the middle so that the upper half can be opened while the lower is shut. Leaning on a stand the extortionate miller himself and his brother just at their left is where Walter placed his camera for No 78 pointing it toward the little building on the left (a sort of shop). On the right is the sawmill. Picture taken just as we were ready to harness. 81.D(50); July 28, Mon. 8 am'
View G.N.E. from rear of Gordon's position.  Strasburg in distance.  87 D (53) Monday July 28, 1884 5 p.m.
83 D (51).  July 28, 1884, Monday 2:30 p.m. cloudy.  About 2 miles south up the valley from Strasburg, Va.   The pike here climbs an embankment and then goes over the bridge and turns a right angle up the valley of Tumbling Run.   We turned off to the lower (East) side and eat our dinner under the big trees on the right.  A ghost of the carriage can be made out.  This view would have made a fine picture if the Neg had not fogged in the development.
