Half holiday. After School went to Pappa's house. We dined there. After dinner we
went to buy the spectators.1
At about six o clock Mr. Guile came to Pappa's and stay'd there a little while. They
say that an American Frigate has fell in with sixteen sail of merchant vessels and
had taken twelve of them.2
At about 8 o clock Mr. Guile went away. Brother Charles and I are to lodge here this
night and we shall not go to school till monday next.
