Rode out of Town and dined with Mr. Macpherson. He has the most elegant Seat in Pensilvania,
a clever Scotch Wife and two pretty daughters. His Seat is on the Banks of Schuylkill.1
He has been Nine Times wounded in Battle. An old Sea Commander, made a Fortune by
Privateering. An Arm twice shot off, shot thro the Leg. &c—He renews his Proposals
of taking or burning Ships.
Spent the Evening with Lynch at the City Tavern. He thinks the Row Gallies and Vesseau
de Frize inadequate to the Expence.2
