Thursday 6th.

The rain ceased before morning and we found ourselves moving rapidly towards Philadelphia in a Cold North Westerly. Having arrived, I decided upon going on by the next boat and therefore only walked up into the City to examine whatever might be new. I walked to the Mansion House, met Quincy and had some conversation with him. Was quite surprised to see him away from the Law. I ordered myself a Coat at Watson’s1 which I thought I might obtain for my Wedding and then returned on board. Found Macauley who was going on. We went in the Trenton and had a tolerably favourable time though excessively jolted and bruised by our land transportation to Brunswick. We arrived in good season and Macauley and I took the same room.
