Almost all our Class have arrived. This morning I was not waked by the ringing of
the prayer bell and therefore did not attend the recitation. I declaimed this afternoon,
part of one of Mr. Fox's speeches, from the Parliamentary debates, in December 1783.1
N. B. Did not speak loud enough, and changed feet too often. We danced in the evening
at Putnams chamber till 9 o'clock. Read after I came home, a chapter or two in Gibbon.
