    time order

    Please show me how to write. There has time order when we write about the time. Are we writing from small to big? Or from big to small? Are there rules about writing time?

    For examples:

    1. He came at 6 on Wed. on January 3rd, 1990 in the morning.(small to big)
    or
    2.He came on Wed. on January 3rd,1990 at 6 in the morning.

    How to write the time order?

    Thank you
