We had always imagined that even in summer we should go about St. Petersburg shivering with cold. The highest meteorological authorities assert that the mean temperature for the month of July is 64 degrees Fahrenheit. As we had no reason to doubt the truth of this statement, we had put on heavy underclothing, and furthermore were provided with overcoats and fur cloaks to guard against the intense cold. Imagine our emotions, therefore, when towards noon of Friday the 24th of July, in this same city of St. Petersburg, we found that the mercury was scaling toward the nineties! It was insufferably hot!
