<Friday> Saturday <20th> 21st 1781.

This morning at five o'clock we set of[f] from Gotha and arriv'd at Naumburg (distant 60 Miles) at about 6 o'clock. Pretty good roads the ground wholly cultivated; flat level country till we get about 10 Miles from Naumburg and then it begins to be a little mountainous.
