No reciting, this day. I was not in at Prayers, in the morning. Mr. Williams gave
us, his second Lecture, upon those Properties of Matter, which though not essential

was of 2 kinds, Cohesion, and Repulsion, and Gravitation. The Substance of the Lectures
I have taken down on Separate Paper,1
so that I shall not repeat it here. I attended the Junior tea-Club, and signed the
Regulations, as I was admitted to it, Last Evening. A Nephew of the President, by
the same Name, was this day examined, and admitted, as a Junior Sophister.
