Loitered the forenoon away upon this Question in Arithmetic. 3 men give 20 shillings
for a Bushell of Corn. A pays in the Proportion of one half, B in the Proportion of
1/3 and C in the Proportion of 1/4. Now how many shillings and Pence does each one
pay? I put x, an Algebraicall Expression, for that unknown Quantity, whose 1/2 1/3
and 1/4 added together would make 20 shillings.

In the afternoon, Zab and I wandered down to Germantown on footâ€”running a Parrallell
between the Pleasures, Profits, freedoms, Ease and Uses of the several Professions,
especially Physick and Divinity.
