This morning Mr Deneufville and Mr. Dana went to look for a carriage, I did not go out in the forenoon; din'd at the Inn; after dinner I went to buy some things at the fair, which began here this morning; got home at about six o'clock.

From Guthrie's Grammer. (continued from yesterday) Chapter 4th. §. 21st.1

N. B. As there are several errors in this description I shall tomorrow point out such of them as I know.


JQA concludes his copying from Guthrie, Geographical Grammar , with the section on the history of the seventeen provinces, which covers nearly five pages in the Diary. To this he has added a list of towns and provinces in the Netherlands retained by the French as provided in the Peace of Aix-la-Chapelle, 1748 (p. 411–412, 408).
