<Wednesday> Thursday <18> 19th 1781.

This morning we set away from Hannau at 4 o'clock A.M. and arriv'd at Hunfeld (which is distant 75 Miles,) at about 8 o'clock P.M. The roads this day were for the most part mountainous but in some places there was a very good made road. The mountains in general, which we have pass'd over this day are pretty well cultivated.
